We are Animating Mission

The Mission Office of the SVD Australian Province has three distinct but interrelated focuses.

They are:

  • To foster mission awareness;
  • To show particular interest in the personal welfare of missionaries;
  • To raise funds for the overseas missions.

Through the Mission Office, the SVD Australian Province fosters mission awareness in a variety of ways. These include the annual celebration of Mission Day at Dorish Maru College in Melbourne. The day consists of a public lecture, followed by a Eucharistic celebration and then a multicultural meal with members of the local church community and guests.

Being a missionary, immersed in a new culture, learning a new language, and being far from home, religious community or family, can sometimes have its challenging and lonely times. The AUS Mission Secretary and the Mission Office keep in touch with missionaries working abroad, to help support them and care for them, especially those who completed their formation in Australia.

A key focus of the Mission Office is to support the mission projects of the SVD around the world. To this end, the Mission Secretary for the Province and a small but dedicated staff, work hard to raise and distribute funds for mission activities in overseas countries. An important part of raising funds is in sharing the stories of how people’s lives are being transformed by these projects and by the love of God as present in and through the SVD missionaries.
