"Given the title "Pontifical" in 1922, the Pontifical Mission Societies have special responsibility in the Universal Church. They are under
the direct canonical jurisdiction of the Pope, who, together with the entire body of Bishops, remind the faithful of their Baptismal call to
mission, as they gather basic support for more than 1,150 mission dioceses in Asia, Africa, the Pacific Islands and Latin America.
The Pontifical Mission Societies include the Society for the Propagation of the Faith, the Missionary Childhood Association, the Society
of St. Peter Apostle, and the Missionary Union of Priests and Religious. For more information, visit www.missio.org

INSIDE BIBLE VERSE: “And Joseph too went up from Galilee from the town of Nazareth to Judea, to the city of David that is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and family of David, to be enrolled with Mary, his betrothed, who was with child. While they were there, the time came for her to have her child, and she gave birth to her firstborn son. She wrapped him in swaddling clothes and laid him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.” - Luke 2:4-7
