Uniting people

with a heart for mission

The Pontifical Missionary Union (PMU) aims to provide mission formation activities for all those with a heart for mission.

The PMU promotes an awareness of mission and spirit of unity among all Christians. It is through this work that the missionary spirit is developed and nurtured and many men, religious and lay, are inspired to witness and share their faith with others.

Today the union has spread throughout the world. In Scotland, its aims are achieved through Missio formation activities. We work with priests, religious and lay people in parishes and schools and with anyone with a heart for mission to ‘go to all nations and proclaim the Good News.’

One example of the work of the Missionary Union is the Get Involved Globally programme which helps young people from Scotland experience the life of the Church in other countries.
