Together we are helping missionaries share the love of Jesus overseas (Red Box)

For almost 200 years, we have been supporting world mission, providing missionaries with the spiritual and material support they need to enable local people to build and sustain their own faith communities.

Today we continue to empower the Catholic Church globally, showing the love of Christ to everyone, and especially to those in need. We achieve this with our partners, the Mill Hill Missionaries, and your generous Red Box donations.

The famous Red Box

Red Box

In England and Wales there are Red Boxes in over 200,000 homes and together we have collected millions of pounds for the missionary Church.

Did you know you can give directly to the Red Box online, or set up a Direct Debit? Contact us if you would like more information on how you can take part in this essential funding programme.

Missio Today

Pauline-Marie Jaricot

Today Missio makes an impact in 1,070 mission dioceses in 157 countries. Through your support we transform lives by listening to local needs and acting in the most effective way: we create infrastructure in impoverished and remote areas; we help to build chapels, schools and orphanages; we facilitate clinics and dispensaries; and we create hubs from which the young church can flourish and grow.

All of this was initially made possible by the vision of one inspirational woman, Pauline-Marie Jaricot, founder of the Association for the Propagation of the Faith (APF). In 1822 Pauline motivated people to donate one penny a week to support overseas mission. Founded in the spirit of philanthropy, the vast scope of our missionary work today is a tribute to you, our present-day donors, whose continued generosity through the Red Boxes enable us to continue God’s mission.

You can keep up to date with news from the mission field through Mission Today, our quarterly magazine for supporters.
