The Superior Council that leads The Pontifical Mission Societies meets every year with the purpose of considering the requests for support from all over the world on the different needs of the young Churches. The funds raised by the faithful of the five continents, particularly during World Mission Sunday (which takes place from the second to the last Sunday of October), are distributed to try and meet the evangelization needs of the Church in mission countries.

National Directors of The Pontifical Mission Societies from 130 countries examine and approve the projects presented annually by the Churches in mission territories, trying to make sure the funds are allocated promptly, transparently, and with the primary intention of answering the call to be Apostles of all nations.
