Missions/CRS Office

The Diocesan Missions/CRS Office represents two very important organizations that support our missionaries and Catholic workers overseas: Pontifical Mission Societies and Catholic Relief Services.

When you make donations to the Propagation of the Faith, Missionary Childhood Association, and CRS Relief Programs, you are directly touching the lives of so many people who look to us, their brothers and sisters in Christ, for support as they work to better their lives and the lives of their families. To read stories about mission work being done locally, visit the Maine in Mission section.

World Mission Rosary

Pray a rosary for missionaries all over the world and those they serve.  Each color of the rosary represents a different region.

Free rosaries are available to all. Contact the Office of Missions for more information.

"It's not just charity. It's change."

A direct way to help missions around the world is through Missio, a connection with Pope Francis' missions around the world.
