Global Mission Resources for Schools
Catholic schools are soon in session and we have some handy resources as we help prepare Catholic young people for a global view of faith.

Our Mission & Vision
Inspired by St. Guido Conforti and St. Francis Xavier, we, Xaverian Missionaries, serve to keep the local Church aware of, engaged with and connected to the missionary mandate of the universal Church, principally by witnessing Jesus to those who have yet to know Him.
We strive to inspire a new generation to the challenges this mission offers us today in a diverse and pluralistic world:
- Intercultural and interfaith dialogue;
- Advocacy for and solidarity with the poor;
- Sharing the legacy of our founder, St. Guido Conforti;
- Telling the stories and witness of our missionaries in the variety of ministries and countries where we serve.
