Welcome to the Pontifical Mission Societies

in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles

Letter from the Executive Director
June 2021…what a difference a year makes! This time last year we were struggling in the seemingly endless days of the pandemic. Today, we can see a light at the end of the tunnel as we begin to emerge slowly and carefully into a new reality. As individuals and as a community, we have undergone many challenges — sickness, death, loneliness, economic uncertainty — the list is long. For all who have suffered during this dark time, I pray that the weeks ahead will bring continued healing and growth.
As our gaze turns outward once again, these words of Pope Francis are profound and timely:
Always, but especially in these times of pandemic, it is important to grow in our daily ability to widen our circle, to reach out to others who…are not immediately part of our circle of interests….To be on mission is to be willing to think as Christ does, to believe with him that those around us are also my brothers and sisters. May his compassionate love touch our hearts and make us all true missionary disciples.
Today, all throughout Africa, Asia, the Pacific Islands, and remote regions of Europe and Latin America, there are thousands of seminarians preparing for the priesthood. They are, as one seminarian in India described it, “preparing to be courageous witnesses for Jesus Christ.” My friends, these committed missionaries, as well as all those whom they will one day serve, are our brothers and sisters. This mission is our mission.
I invite you to answer the call to be a missionary disciple through your support of the Society for
the Propagation of the Faith/Society of St. Peter Apostle. Through your help, this missionary arm
of the Holy Father provides textbooks, technology, housing, food, and medical care to seminarians in the mission lands. A gift of $700 supports a mission seminarian for a year. A donation of $60 provides a month’s support. A monthly gift or single donation in any amount would be a tremendous blessing.
I can assure you that anything your financial reality allows will make a difference in the lives of these missionaries and in the lives of those whom they will one day serve as priests and religious.
Thank you for your kind consideration of my invitation and for keeping the work of all missionaries throughout the world in your prayers.

– Reverend Monsignor Terrance L. Fleming
