Lent 2021

Companions on the Journey

Our friends at Hands Together have invited us to be part of a Lenten project. The premise is a simple one: sign up for a daily email of short inspirational quotes, sayings, or prayers and commit to silently pray about them for five minutes. Because Hands Together ministers to the people of Haiti, they ask that you keep them in prayer. We would ask that you add all the people whose lives are touched by missionaries, like the ones featured below. Click here to become a Companion on the Journey this Lent.


In the Amazon Region of Peru, where many people fear hunger more than COVID-19, the faithful still contribute what little they have so that The Society for the Propagation of the Faith can serve those who hunger for Jesus.




In Thailand, where missionaries collaborate to serve children with disabilities, the minority faithful gather aid so that little ones who find themselves marginalized worldwide, due to their physical or mental challenges, receive lifesaving help from missionaries.



Catholics in Kenya continue to dig deep each Sunday so that young people across their own continent, at risk of being recruited to violence by local militias, can instead be educated by missionaries with support from The Society for the Propagation of the Faith.



Your donations to The Society for the Propagation of the Faith, join you with Catholics worldwide who support these efforts and more in the missions of our world. You reach the poorest communities with a message of hope and healing, mercy and peace.


This year brings new challenges, as many of us will be watching Sunday Mass from our homes. We invite you to make a gift to the missions that you would normally offer in your parish by clicking on the Donate Now button on the top of this page. If you are attending church, can you give a bit extra to ensure that others around the world have the same privilege?

Join us every day as we work to spread the Gospel to the ends of the earth!
