From the commitment of this one woman, the global mission of the Church found sustenance and support. In May 2022 Pauline Jaricot's beatification will take place, a key milestone on the journey towards being recognised as a saint. 2022 marks also the 200th anniversary of the Foundation for the Society of the Propagation of the Faith, which in Australia is known as Catholic Mission.Today, a worldwide network of lay missionaries and church leaders are working together with communities most in need.
