Join Missio to journey through Advent!

Join Missio to journey through Advent!


Missio is excited to share opportunities to connect and reflect throughout the Season of Advent. Our online reflections and a mission-focused online Advent Calendar are designed to bring communities across England and Wales together in prayer.

Starting on 26 November 2021 and taking place every Friday at 10:30am, the online reflections will be shared from the Missio chapel in Eccleston Square. Each week reflections will be given by missionaries, including sisters, priests and lay people who will focus on how Advent is celebrated around the world, whilst reflecting on the upcoming Sunday readings.

Supporters can join in by watching the livestream at and the reflections will be available to watch shortly after at

To complement these reflections, Missio has recreated our popular online Advent Calendar. With scripture, images, films, music, and prayers behind the digital doors, we hope it will guide supporters through this special season. Small daily actions are also included to highlight how supporters can pray for and help sustain the work of missionaries and the communities they serve around the world. 

The Advent Calendar will be live from 1 December 2021.


Missio ignites God’s love by helping missionaries to work alongside communities globally that are poor or in need, regardless of their background or belief.

Sometimes this need might be very specific: a motorbike for a priest to celebrate Mass in remote villages; a simple community hall so people can gather together; vaccinations to protect vulnerable children. Whatever our missionaries need to help them share the joy of the Gospel, Missio strives to provide it.

We are proud to be the Pope’s charity for world mission.

By supporting Missio, you play a valuable part in creating a vibrant Catholic Church for the future.

By volunteering, raising or donating funds, and by praying with children, grandchildren or students, YOU make our mission possible.

Together we are enriching today’s global Catholic community.

Together we are training tomorrow’s generation of priests and sisters.

Together we are giving hope to the world’s poorest children.

Together we are Missio.
