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 the Society are a substantial means of support. One such place is the Dominican Republic. In a parish in the rural town of El Factor run by Missionary Fathers of the Sacred Heart of Jesus (MSC Fathers), a tiny church is brought to life by the sacramental preparation of the local children. Each year, these children eagerly anticipate the arrival of teenage missionaries from the U.S. who visit the MSC Fathers and provide not only physical labor for the rehabilitation of the church, but also run mini Vacation Bible Schools for the local children. Their artwork is proudly displayed in the church year round!
Because of our Members’ support, the children are taught not only that God loves them, but that through our One Family in Mission, people from around the world love and support them as well.
