Throughout the year, the Pontifical Mission Societies support the proclamation of the Gospel, the building of the Church, and the work and witness of mission priests, religious Sisters and Brothers, and lay pastoral leaders. These missionaries provide food, education, and medical care to the most vulnerable communities in the Pope’s missions. Through their work, they reveal the compassionate heart of Jesus. Help support their efforts ~ and be right there with them, offering hope.
Father Venansio is one of just 180 priests serving the youngest nation in the world: South Sudan. Home to 11 million souls facing war, extreme poverty, and HIV/AIDS, his country is plagued by hunger and violence. Surviving on just $460 per year, each one of
these priests struggles to bring peace, dignity, and hope to their people. This Lent, will you help the priests and religious in the mission not only survive, but thrive, in their ministry?
