Catholic Mission Outreach

In 2022 and 2023, your generosity to Catholic Mission Outreach enriched the lives of the most vulnerable in 37 dioceses from 20 countries. Your funding is the financial fuel to help assist dioceses in most need, from religious orders of men and women serving worldwide to local dioceses and ministries in financial crises.  

Donations are accepted year-round and during a special parish Second Collection each July during the Archdioceses’ Catholic Mission Outreach Collection (formerly Mission Cooperative). Projects are selected from applications in October from the many missions and ministries doing the good work of the church and serving God’s people.

Spreading Hope in the Diocese of Gallup, New Mexico

Assisting one of the poorest dioceses in the United States, your selfless giving has positively impacted this community by serving two impoverished Catholic schools in the area that educate the Native American population. Your generosity to the Catholic Mission Outreach Second Collection has also helped to repair the roof of St. John Evangelist Parish. Once known as "Tekakwitha Mission", it was built by St. Katharine Drexel.  

“As always, you are in our prayers of gratitude, as one of our benefactors to this Mission Diocese of Gallup. May God bless you all.”

- Cathy McCarthy, Archivist/Grants Facilitator, Diocese of Gallup

Bless All the Children in the Diocese of Kakamega

Your abundant generosity is uplifting the Divine Providence Children’s Home as they help shape the lives of the most vulnerable in Kenya!

The Benedictine Sisters of Divine Providence serve underprivileged and abandoned children in the Diocese by caring, educating, and protecting them as their cases are being handled in court.

Your support has given the Sisters the chance to provide basic needs including food, shelter, medical care, education, and counseling to the children that reside in the home. They have also been able to work throughout the adoption and foster care process so the children can be with loving families.
