is the Scottish branch of the Pontifical Mission Societies
We are the Pope’s official charity for overseas mission.
Missio Scotland brings the hope of the Gospel where there is turmoil, poverty or uncertainty, and aid to where the Church is new, young or poor.
Missio Scotland empowers local people to form and sustain communities of faith.
We also help to train and nurture future leaders so that the vital work of the Church can continue to take place.

"The Pontifical Mission Societies serve the Church’s universality as a global network of support for the Pope in his missionary commitment by prayer, the soul of mission, and charitable offerings from Christians throughout the world. Their donations assist the Pope in the evangelisation efforts of particular Churches (the Pontifical Society for the Propagation of the Faith), in the formation of local clergy (the Pontifical Society of Saint Peter the Apostle), in raising missionary awareness in children (Pontifical Society of Missionary Children) and in encouraging the missionary dimension of Christian faith (Pontifical Missionary Union). In renewing my support for these societies, I trust that the extraordinary Missionary Month of October 2019 will contribute to the renewal of their missionary service to my ministry."
