Society Membership Honors Our Mothers and Fathers

For many years, Catholics have followed the custom of enrolling themselves or their loved ones, living or deceased, in Membership in the Society for the Propagation of the Faith. By doing so, they give an ongoing gift to the new member and to the missions. Membership means that the person enrolled receives the spiritual benefits of Masses said daily by mission priests; they are also included in the intentions of a daily Mass celebrated at the Vatican.

Every year we are pleased to offer special enrollments to help you celebrate and honor special family members – mothers and fathers. By offering $5 to the missions to enroll your family members, you help to expand the family of God through the work of missionaries.

In many mission locations, funds from Society Membership are a substantial means of support. One such place is the Diocese of Kasana-Luweero in Uganda. Through support from our One Family in Mission, children are educated and cared for, clean water is provided to the villagers to ensure a healthier lifestyle and local men and women are able to say “yes” to God and choose a life dedicated to His service. Work being done in the Diocese by the Apostles of Jesus Missionaries is vital to all these ministries and supported by the generosity of our donors.

In a very real way, your Membership helps to bring that work to where it is most needed.
