The Center for Mission promotes and supports the universal and social mission of the Catholic Church in the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minnesota through opportunities to encounter Christ in mission. One of the ways we support the local and global mission of the Church is to offer grants for missionaries, mission and social outreach organizations and mission projects. With gifts from our mission donors and national program allocations, we have established several grants to support various global and social mission activities at home and overseas.
Mustard Seed Mission Fund: supports overseas missionary vocations
Fr. Karl Wittman Fund: supports overseas mission dioceses and projects
Alfred Hauwiller Fund: assists local archdiocesan mission and social outreach activities
CRS Rice Bowl Grant: funds archdiocesan initiatives that work towards alleviation of hunger and poverty
Black and Native American Mission Grant: supports Catholic schools and parishes that serve these communities
Catholic Campaign for Human Development Grants: funds local anti-poverty community and economic development programs
