Welcome to the
Society for the Propagation of the Faith.

  • “If we had God’s Word always in our heart, no temptation could separate us from God.”

Pope Francis @Pontifex

Letter from the Director

The Mission Office at the Archdiocese of Los Angeles exists to promote the ministry of evangelization through the Pontifical Mission Societies. This Lenten season, we are invited to make the transformative journey of experiencing Jesus in the Sacraments , in Scripture, and in our neighbor. Experiencing our Lord in our neighbor is more complicated since our neighbor is not just the family we see next door or down the block. Rather, our neighbor is the family on the other side of the globe, unseen by us, but united with us just the same. And sadly, there are many of these families living without hope as they experience pain and suffering unimaginable to us.


As we celebrate this Easter season, I invite you to experience our Lord in our neighbor by bringing enduring hope to our brothers and sisters in the mission lands. You can do this by supporting the Society for the Propagation of the Faith. Your prayers and gifts not only sustain those living in the darkest of circumstances, but they also support the priests, religious and lay catechists through whom our brothers and sisters experience concrete signs of hope and God’s healing love.

Make a gift of enduring hope.


- Reverend Monsignor Terrance Fleming
