Society Membership Supports Mission Priests

Throughout the centuries, Catholics have followed the praiseworthy custom of requesting that Mass be celebrated for themselves or for loved ones, living or deceased. By enrolling yourself or your loved one in Membership in the Society for the Propagation of the Faith, you give an ongoing gift to the new Member and to the missions. Membership means that a mission priest will celebrate Mass for the person enrolled. As he does so, this priest unites the Society Member with himself and his congregation - a clear sign of the universality of the Church! Members are also included in the intentions of a Mass said daily at the Basilica of St. Peter in Rome for all donors to the Pontifical Mission Societies, living and deceased.

For many mission priests, Mass Offerings are a substantial means of day-by-day support. These men, ordained for the universal Church, are serving the poorest of God’s poor, often depending upon Mass stipends collected from Members of the Propagation of the Faith for the daily operation of their parishes, schools, health clinics and quite often for their own daily bread.

Membership cards and folders are available for various lengths of time (one year to perpetual) and at various prices. Mass cards used to mark birthdays, anniversaries, and sacramental celebrations, to say thank you or pray for healing also help us to support priests doing vital work in more than 1150 mission dioceses around the world.
