About Mission Together

Missio and Mission Together’s Red Boxes.

Mission Together is the children’s branch of Missio – the Catholic Church’s official children’s charity for overseas mission.

For 170 years we’ve helped Catholic children follow Jesus’ example: by praying, fundraising and becoming missionaries themselves.

What makes Mission Together special is that we’re universal: while children in England and Wales pray and fundraise for children overseas, children around the world are praying and sharing too, in an amazing exchange of faith and friendship.

We help people regardless of background or beliefs. That’s how we show the all-embracing nature of the Catholic Church and the true meaning of ‘mission’.

Education in the UK

Our resources for teachers focus on the Gospel and liturgical seasons. They explain our work around the world and complement Catholic RE programmes. They uphold Catholic teaching, and are mindful of the Common Inspection FrameworkWe provide:

  • free online resources to download
  • a team of experienced volunteers to lead assemblies and workshops on request
  • mission rosaries, prayer posters, stickers and project maps, which you can order here.

Practical help overseas

Thanks to children in England and Wales, we can provide life-changing aid around the world in whatever form it’s needed. That could be a new school, vaccinations or a generator for a children’s home. But we’re a missionary charity: we support children’s spiritual wellbeing too. We show them God loves every single one of them.

We use the Church’s network because it’s effective, far-reaching and secure. The mission diocese or parish can direct aid where it’s most useful, deciding local needs on a local level.

Ultimately, with our support, local communities overseas take ownership of their project, and become self-sustaining.

This year, our Together in South Africa campaign features Johannes*, an eleven-year-old resident at St John’s Care Centre, South Africa. Read more here.

You make it possible!

Thanks to schools like yours, Mission Together can support schools, orphanages, street shelters, clinics and feeding programmes in 159 countries. That’s over 1,000 mission dioceses worldwide!

We couldn’t do it without you. Thank you for your support.
