The Pontifical Missionary Societies support the development of the Church and consequently a great many people in the 1,100 poorest dioceses of the world. Missio provides help for pastoral and social projects such as the construction of churches, health centres and community centres as well as numerous educational initiatives. In every case the focus is on the spiritual and physical needs of the people. For Missio, projects that support the growth of the Church in the countries of the South are particularly important. At the same time the beneficiaries should be given aid to start new projects which enable them to help themselves.
Projects submitted to us for support should provide testimony of the way God is at work in our lives and how we can work together to continue establishing the Church and proclaiming the Gospel.
