The Pontifical Mission Societies consist of the Society for the Propagation of
the Faith, the Holy Childhood Association, the Society of St. Peter Apostle
and the Missionary Union of Priests and Religious. The Pontifical Mission
Societies have, as their primary purpose, the promotion of a universal
missionary spirit — a spirit of prayer and sacrifice — among all baptized
Catholics.
The first three Societies, in carrying out that goal, invite baptized Catholics to
express their missionary commitment by offering their prayers, personal
sacrifices and financial support for the work of the Church in the Missions.
The Missionary Union of Priests and Religious works to deepen mission
awareness among priests, men and women Religious, catechists, and educators
so that they are fully prepared to take on the mission formation of
the faithful. These four Societies each received the title “pontifical” in 1922
to indicate their status as official instruments of the Holy Father and of the
Universal Roman Catholic Church.
