The college has 128 catholic students and 12 staff members. 
 
The students gather in one of the classrooms for the Sunday Liturgy, but because of lack of space it can no longer serve this function. The Diocese has, therefore, acquired land near the college and has completed the construction of a chapel dedicated to St. Maria Goreti.

HISTORY

 

The PSPF is one of the four Pontifical Mission Societies founded in France in 1822 through Pauline Marie Jaricot's intuition.

WHO WAS PAULINE

Born in Lyon on July 22, 1799, Pauline M. Jaricot received a good Christian upbringing. Thanks to her brother, Philéas, a student preparing to leave as a missionary to China, she learned about the critical situation the missions were going through. At only 17 years of age, she privately took the vow of chastity and made a resolute decision to do all she could to support the missionaries' activity. In 1817 she organized the first collections for the missions and promoted a great missionary movement based on a spirituality that soon went beyond the French borders and extended throughout the world.

Her life was entirely enlightened by faith and lived in love of God and the commitment to help the neediest at all latitudes. She died in Lyon on January 9, 1892. On February 25, 1963, Pope John XXIII proclaimed Pauline Marie Jaricot “Venerable”.

THE SOCIETY

The Society was born officially on May 3, 1822 in Lyon with the name: Association of the Propagation of the Faith.  Exactly a century later, on May 3, 1922, Pius XI gave it the title of “Pontifical”.  Its central offices were transferred to Rome to collaborate better with the Congregation for the Evangelization of People in promoting the missionary spirit and activity.

MISSION

 

The Society of the Propagation of the Faith has the goal of opening every believer's heart to the vastness of the missionary horizon through spiritual and material support for the proclamation of the Kingdom of God.

 Through a constant and vigorous commitment to missionary formation and animation it promotes: 

  •  missionary spirituality, which through prayer and sacrifice contributes to rekindling the missionary ardor of the Christian communities and the individual faithful through meditation on the Word of God, Eucharistic Adoration and the Missionary Rosary.

  •  universal solidarity through contributions to theUniversal Solidarity Fund for the evangelization of the world, in a special way on World Mission Day which is celebrated on the next-to-the-last Sunday of October, an event for the people of God to share in the Church's catholicity. The PSPF International Secretariat has the task to urge the local Churches to be open to universal missionary cooperation and to distribute in the Pope's name what is collected around the world during World Mission Day. This gesture highlights what was established by the Second Vatican Council which exhorted every believer to get personally into the missionary dynamism of the whole Church.
