Mission Education

Mission and Education

Teaching about MissionMany Catholic educators and groups—teachers, DRE’s, youth ministers, human concerns committees, etc.—are finding creative ways to reflect and act on the call to global solidarity and to integrate international concerns into their programs and classes.  World Mission Ministries seeks to assist in this effort by providing a number of ways to help others learn about and participate in their baptismal call to mission and global understanding.

Please wait while we gather your results.
