The Mission Office of the Catholic Diocese of Saginaw is the local office of the Pontifical Society for the Propagation of Faith. Its mission is to carry out the mission of Christ to alleviate human suffering, promote social justice and proclaim the gospel through prayer, education, sacrifice, and financial support. This is accomplished through various appeals, including World Mission Sunday and the Mission COOP Appeal.
