One Mission, Four Expressions
MissioNZ is the Pontifical Mission Societies in New Zealand.
A network of four distinct societies, each with its own focus, but all united in one common mission.
The objective of Missionz is to promote awareness of the mission of the Catholic Church – to present the good news of Jesus Christ to all peoples, and to generate spiritual, material and financial support for those working in mission and third world territories.
The Pontifical Mission Societies have the common aim of assisting the Holy Father, in spreading missionary awareness among priests, religious, adults and children; encouraging aid to the poor, and gathering financial support for different projects in third world countries. The funds collected during the year by the Pontifical Mission Societies are sent directly to mission dioceses in need, as decided at Council in Rome each May.
You are called to be Missionary Disciples!
(Pope Francis, Evangelium Gadium, 119ff)
“…everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life.”
“I appointed you to go and bear fruit, fruit that will last…”
MissioNZ assists various missions around the world. Here are some examples.
