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 Framework. We provide:
- free online resources
- Experienced volunteers to lead assemblies on request
- Mission Rosaries, prayer posters, and stickers, 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 classroom, a feeding programme, 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, communities overseas take ownership of their project, and become self-sustaining.
The film below was taken at a Mission Together supported school in Nepal, one of the poorest countries in Asia. Catholics are a minority in Nepal, but the work of its Church extends to all in need of support and care.
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.
