The Society For The Propagation Of The Faith

Founded by the Venerable Pauline Jaricot, the Society for the Propagation of the Faith seeks prayer and sacrifice for the world’s Missions, now some 1,100 dioceses in Asia, Africa, the Pacific Islands and remote regions of Latin America. Help is offered for pastoral and evangelizing programs, for catechists and catechetical work, to build churches and chapels, for the work of Religious communities in health care and education, and for communication and transportation needs.

The very first collection of the Propagation of the Faith in 1822 supported the vast diocese of Louisiana,which then extended from the Florida Keys to Canada, as well as the missions of Kentucky and China.
