What is Overseas Mission?

Missio Red Boxes

Missio is part of the worldwide network of Pontifical Mission Societies. One of the branches of Missio is The Association for the Propagation of the Faith (APF) which assists each and every one of the Catholic Church's 1,062 mission dioceses and territories to provide pastoral care and preach the Gospel effectively. 

It was founded in Lyons, France, in 1822 by a young French woman, Pauline Jaricot. She began by persuading local working people to support the missions by giving a farthing a week. A century later, when the organisation was established in almost every country of the world, Pope Pius XI made it the official mission-funding society for the Catholic Church. 

The APF works in England and Wales with the Mill Hill Missionary Society, the only major missionary society to have been formed in England. Mill Hill was one of the first societies to introduce lay missionaries, and its priests, lay brothers and associates work in 27 countries and every continent. 

In England and Wales funds for the Missions are collected through the famous Red collection Boxes. These can be found in 200,000 homes and they have helped raise millions of pounds for the missions. 

Monsignor James Cronin has been director of Missio in England and Wales for a little under a year now and joins us in this podcast to talk about the work of missio.  Explaining what Mission is he said that:

"the purpose of mission is to make disciples, to proclaim the faith and invite others to receive the Gospel. Mission is preaching the faith and works of charity together." 

He says that "..the two must come together it is not just about humanitarian development, there are plenty of NGOs and humanitarian aid agencies out there.  Pope Benedict in his letter for World Mission Sunday, said that if we do just good works and don't proclaim the faith, he says we are cheating people... "

Quoting Cardinal Turkson he said: "We have ways of measuring material poverty and we know where there's material poverty.. you cannot measure spiritual poverty and spiritual poverty is the greater threat to human development because that holds people back from developing their whole self."
