Society Membership Communicates the Faith

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 member and the missions. Membership means 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.

In many mission locations, funds from Society Memberships are a substantial means of support. One such place is Tena, Ecuador. Part of the Vicariate of Napo, Tena is home to the only means of regular catechism for many Catholics in the area – a radio station. Every day, the faithful listen to everything from religious music to the Mass itself. For many, it is the only Mass they can attend due to the long distances between parishes. Your support, in a direct way, brings the Faith to thousands.
