hands_around_world_fullThe Saint Cloud Mission Office carries the primary responsibility for promotion of the global outreach of the Catholic Diocese of Saint Cloud. We are the office for the Pontifical Mission Societies (global pastoral and evangelization work in some of the poorest dioceses of our world) as well as for Catholic Relief Services (CRS) (emergency relief, sustainable development and global solidarity efforts in 99+ countries across the globe).  The staff considers their role to be bridge-builders between our diocesan church and communities of faith throughout the world. Our role at the Mission Office is proactive as we strive to help everyone see the face of God in all people. It is to walk together on a journey of faith, living out our membership and our call to the Global church, united as one family. It is about all of us together educating, learning, and teaching each other about our similarities, our differences and the giftedness of everyone in God’s great world.

Please visit the pages above to learn more about this remarkable type of ministry and all the great things happening in mission around our diocese, and world – from diocesan partnerships and missioners to the Pontifical Mission Societies and CRS, from parish mission groups and mission trips to education opportunities and fair trade, and more!
