Prayer is central to everything Missio does. When we pray together, we share in God’s love and are inspired to make the world a better place. We ask you to pray with us and for us, so the missionaries we support can find strength to continue to ignite God’s love around the world.
Lent and Holy Week
In these days when we cannot gather together for Mass, we can continue to be together through prayer. Please do share our resources with your family and friends.
If you are able to watch a Mass being broadcast online, you may find our Pray with the Mass sheet below helpful to enable you and your family to follow along.
As the Covid-19 virus affects more and more people around the world, we’re reminded how closely we are all connected to, and dependant on, each other across God’s world.
Pray with us for all those affected by Covid-19, and all those who are working to heal and care for them.
Use these bidding prayers at Mass.
Pray with Pope Francis
Each month the Pope asks us to pray for a particular intention. All of the Holy Father’s intentions are provided for you in our Mission Today magazine and online.
Pray this month’s prayer intention here.
Share a prayer
We always pray for our supporters at Mass and in our intentions. If you would like to share a specific intention with us, you can send them to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will add your prayers to our intentions list. You can also help mission dioceses by donating a Mass offering – a wonderful way of bringing your intentions to God at Mass, whilst supporting the new Church.
Masses and events
Throughout the year, mission masses happen across England and Wales, to celebrate Mission, pray for missionaries, and come together in prayer.
Find upcoming events near you here.
If you’d like to become talk to someone about arranging a talk from a Missio representative in your parish, please get in touch.
Pray with Missio
Below you will find a selection of prayers to pray with Missio. Please feel free to download these prayers to use privately or with your prayer group. There is also a selection of prayers for children and schools, and you can find more resources on the Mission Together website.
Tour the world with your Rosary
Each colour-coded decade of the Mission Rosary represents a continent where the Church continues her mission: green for the forests and grasslands of Africa; blue for the ocean surrounding the islands of the Pacific; white symbolising Europe, the seat of the Holy Father; red calling to mind the fire of faith that brought missionaries to the Americas; and yellow, the morning light of the East, for Asia. The Mission Rosary is very popular with children in schools; it’s a wonderful way for them to relate to the world around them and to gain an understanding of what it means to belong to the Universal Church. But anyone can pray the Mission Rosary. Mission Rosaries can be obtained from the Missio office. Please contact us to request yours. Below you can download a pamphlet to use with your Mission Rosary, with reflections for each mystery.
