And the Winner Is…

All who had registered with MISSIO by noon EST February 10, 2017, were entered for a chance to join the Pontifical Mission Societies on their pilgrimage to Rome in May 2017, a journey that would hopefully include an audience with Pope Francis!

MISSIO congratulates Mary Moll, who will be making that May 2017 journey with our Diocesan Directors of the Pontifical Mission Societies!

Created by the Pontifical Mission Societies and launched by Pope Francis, MISSIO connects you directly with those making a difference and lets you see just where your money is going.
