Our Appeals

Each year Catholic Mission holds appeals to raise funds and awareness for our work with children, communities and Church leaders.

Below you can find out more about our appeals.

Our work with communities


We work with communities around the world to bring fullness of life to all people through a range of crucial projects.

From catechism training to water and sanitation facilities, the initiatives we support address needs identified at the grassroots level. Local Church leaders serve their communities by planning and implementing these projects; at Catholic Mission, we provide the funding and program support to ensure their long-term sustainability.

Our work with children


A core part of our work is the development and sustenance of children in some of the poorest communities around the world.

Ensuring fullness of life for all of God’s children requires, at a minimum, shelter, food and education. In many communities in which we work, our programs entail a combination of these critical pillars.

Our work with Church leaders


Our work with church leaders is all about equipping young men and women in developing countries with the skills and knowledge to lead their local faith communities towards peace and prosperity.

At a crucial time for the global Church’s leadership, there are few more important steps than the formation of seminarians and novices. In places of conflict, economic hardship and disunity, Church leaders play an important role in bringing about peace through dialogue and strong leadership.
