The Center for Mission promotes and coordinates the global mission outreach of the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis. We help build bridges of cooperation and communion between the archdiocese and global communities gathering both spiritual and material support, through the archdiocese, for over 1150 mission dioceses in more than 120 countries around the world. We further this work by participating in activities such as the Missionary Cooperation Plan, the World Mission Sunday celebration, Mass Stipends, Planned Giving opportunities, Monthly Membership donors and Bequests.

Participation is the key to mission.
