In a video message to the Pontifical Missions Societies, Pope Francis called all Christians to be missionaries through prayer. He identifies prayer as “the first missionary work” – the responsibility of every believer as we work with the Holy Spirit to support the global Church and advance the Gospel.
How Cross Catholic Outreach is making an impact
The Pontifical Mission Societies exists to strengthen the Church worldwide, especially in areas that have been largely unreached by the Gospel. Pope Francis identifies its responsibilities as “praying and acting concretely to support evangelization.” Following the same model, Cross Catholic Outreach believes in partnering with missions around the world – and supporting ministries that address both material and spiritual needs. Together with our donors, we strive to empower effective global ministries and cover them in prayer.
