The Genesis

The story told is that faith comes from hearing. Pauline Marie Jaricot was a believer with a simple heart.

The Target

Today, the Pontifical Society of the Propagation of the Faith works to help realise the following:

  2. To inform Christians of the life and events of Catholic communities in developing countries;
  3. To labour for the increase of both spiritual and material assistance between churches, with particular attention to the exchange of apostolic personnel with a view to the evangelisation of the whole world;
  4. To promote missionary vocation ad gentes;
  5. To promote education for justice, especially among young people, that may lead to missionary service;
  6. To promote economic solidarity by appealing to the generosity of Christians and developing social justice and assistance programmes that cater to local needs of the community.
