“The laity should cooperate in the Church's work of evangelization; As witnesses and at the same time as living instruments, they share in her saving mission.” 
(Ad Gentes, 41)

Founded in Lyons, France, by Venerable Pauline Marie Jaricot, the Society for the Propagation of the Faith is one of four Pontifical Mission Societies, which seeks prayer and sacrifice for the missions of the world.  Your ongoing support of the Society for the Propagation of the Faith is vital to the missionaries serving in 1,150 dioceses throughout Asia, Africa, Europe, Pacific Islands and remote parts of Latin America.

Your generosity makes it possible for local priests, religious, and catechists to reach out to communities, families and children in desperate need, bringing the light of Christ to the darkest of circumstances. Pope Francis emphatically said that evangelization directed preferentially to the least among us is a sign of the Kingdom that Jesus came to bring.

 “There is an inseparable bond between our faith and the poor. May we never abandon them.” (Evangelii Gaudium, 48)
