In December, we pray with Pope Francis for voluntary organisations and charities devoted to human development; may they engage people committed to the common good, and always look for new ways to improve international cooperation.

‘Charity is at the heart of the Church, it is the reason for its action, the soul of its mission’.

– Pope Francis

Our focus for December

  • Advent is here once more! As we wait in joyful hope for the birth of our Saviour, we resolve to keep him front-and-centre throughout the season. Find ways to join Missio during Advent here>>
  • While Christmas is a time for joy, for many people around the world it’s also a time of stress and hardship. Please support our Christmas appeal and help missionaries reach families and children in need this Christmas. Click here to support us>>
  • We couldn’t do what we do without our volunteers! While the Holy Father calls us to pray for voluntary organisations, we will be highlighting, celebrating and thanking those amazing people who make our work possible. Keep an eye on our social media feeds throughout the month, for profiles and quotes from our volunteers around England and Wales.
