Go Ye Therefore and Teach All Nations
Before his Ascension into heaven, Christ met with his disciples in Galilee and told them, “All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost…and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.”
The St. Paul Mission Society was founded in 2007 for the purpose of fulfilling this Commission by encouraging the witness, faith, and practice of the Anglican Catholic Church. Its statutes direct it to “provide funding, personnel, and other forms of support for domestic and international missions,” and to assist in “the amelioration, relief, and assistance of persons and communities distressed by natural or man-made events or disasters or by adverse social or political situations.”
Based in the US, the main focus of the Society is in the developing world. The generosity of those who donate has helped thousands with food, shelter, and clothing in places ranging from Haiti to Pakistan, and from the Philippines to Sudan. As always, the good works of the Society are accompanied by the Good News of Christ.
On the domestic front, the Society helps sponsor activities such as the Anglican Youth Work Camp, a service project where young people from parishes across the United States come together to build and repair homes for people in need. The domestic mission is also charged with assisting in the process of planting and supporting of new parishes in Canada and the US.
