For 150 years, the Comboni Missionaries have traveled to nearly every corner of the world, sharing the good news of Christ and working to protect the dignity of all people. Founded in 1867 by St. Daniel Comboni, the Comboni Missionaries are an international Catholic organization dedicated to ministering to the world's poorest and most abandoned people, often working in unstable political climates, in the midst of extreme poverty. Despite these challenges, our missionaries are dedicated to their mission of serving God’s people.
In all the places we serve we share our deep faith in God through service:
• Ministering through the Sacraments
• Helping improve quality of life
• Preparing local Christian leaders to serve their people
• Providing resources such as food, clean water, churches, medicine, schools, and community centers
With our founder, St. Daniel Comboni, as an inspiration since our beginning 153 years ago, we work for the full development of the human person. We do this through evangelization, education, and advocacy until those we minister to can take over those roles – not just for themselves but for others in need.
We hope you will give generously this holiday season to support our missionaries around the globe. Learn more at www.ComboniMissionaries.org.
