Society Membership Vital To Building the Mission Church

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.

In many mission locations, funds from Society Memberships are a substantial means of support. One such place is the Archdiocese of Mbarara in Uganda. At a mission school there, the Sisters of Our Lady of Good Counsel provide vocational training to young women who have been left at the margins of life with no skills to support themselves. They are taught to weave sweaters and sew uniforms to be sold to local schools. They proudly model their work in the picture below!

Because of our Members’ support, the Sisters teach not only valuable life skills but priceless faith skills as well.
