Catholic Mission is the international mission aid agency of the Catholic Church in Australia.

Locally and globally:

  • We answer the call to love God and to love our neighbour.
  • We work to establish the Reign of God.

We build

Communities of missionary disciples of Jesus who share their faith by proclaiming the Word, serving people in need, and acting for justice and creation.

Compelled by the message, life and love of Jesus Christ, Catholic Mission forms Australians for mission and raises funds for mission – in Australia and around the world. This enables heroic missionaries to reach out to help children and communities in need, and provide vital training for seminarians and other young church leaders.

Catholic Mission (also called the Pontifical Mission Societies) operates in over 160 countries to support initiatives in 1100 dioceses, including remote Australia. Grassroots needs are identified by local Catholics, to give people the opportunity for a full, enriched life – physically and spiritually – regardless of race, stigma, religion or gender. Mission in action happens right now and for generations, to help people immediately, longer term and eternally. We engage in mission when we proclaim our faith through our words, actions and lives.
