To alleviate material and spiritual poverty by empowering the poor and sharing the Gospel of Christ.
Who Are We?
Catholic World Mission works to spread the message of the Church and rebuild communities worldwide. We are the hands, feet, and eyes of Christ to impoverished children and families. We are passionate about our work for the physically, spiritually, and intellectually poor. We support the work of priests, religious, missionaries, and lay people working to make a difference in the lives of others, materially and spiritually. We take seriously Jesus’ admonition that “whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me” (Mt 25:40), and we stand in the gap between the poor of the world and our generous donors, making a way for Jesus to be better known to the poorest of the poor and to the benefactors who give so selflessly where the need is greatest.
Catholic World Mission was founded in 1998 by a Legionary priest, a member of the Regnum Christi movement. Regnum Christi is an apostolic movement within the Catholic Church comprised of Legionary and diocesan priests, seminarians, consecrated men and women, and lay people throughout the world who serve the evangelizing mission of the Church.
What Do We Do?
At Catholic World Mission we believe in alleviating suffering, illuminating the mind, and igniting the Spirit. We accomplish our goal through four pillars of work:
We alleviate suffering by providing material support through our Dignified Living and Disaster Relief pillars, illuminate the mind by providing opportunities for affordable Catholic education for the poorest children through our Education pillar, and ignite the Spirit to new heights by providing the sacramental, healing, and life-giving power of Jesus Christ and His Church through our Evangelization pillar.
