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.

The Holy See has established four Pontifical Mission Aid Societies, which form one institution with four branches: Society for the Propagation of the Faith, Society of St. Peter Apostle, Missionary Union of Priests and Religious, and Missionary Childhood Association.

The principle aim of the Pontifical Mission Societies, according to their statutes is "the promotion of a universal missionary spirit in the hearts of the People of God."
