Pope Francis has highlighted his passion for the Pontifical Mission Societies, known in Australia as Catholic Mission, recognising mission is at the heart and identity of the Church, and the worldwide network reflects the rich variety of “people with a thousand faces”. Inspired by the words of the Holy Father, you are invited into the family of missionaries around the world who say: we are still here.
These faces are featured in an inspirational video that connects more than 30 missionaries based in over 25 different countries speaking a variety of languages. Produced by Catholic Mission, the global awareness campaign, launched as part of World Mission Month, is being shared with Pontifical Mission Societies around the world.#WeAreStillHere Global Mission
