The staff of the Mission Office supervises the missionary work of the Church, provides educational programs about this work and manages financial appeals that support the missions.
The purpose of this office is to enable the members of our Archdiocese to realize their responsibility as missionaries bestowed on them in baptism to extend the mission begun by Jesus to the ends of the earth.
