The ACC's missionary outreach provides humanitarian relief and a chance to hear the Gospel of Christ to people across the world.
Before he ascended into heaven, Christ met with his disciples 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..."
The ACC works to fulfill this great commission through the St. Paul Mission Society. The SPMS was founded 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.
To carry out this work, the SPMS relies on donations from people like you. Donations to the general fund are most effective since they can be allocated as needs arise. However, the SPMS also raise funds for specific areas of need. To find out this month's special project, simply scroll down, past the online giving button below.

The Orphanage of St. Therese in Tapio,Haiti
Twice a year, the SPMS highlights a specific mission for prayer and financial support. This quarter we are focusing on the The Orphanage of St. Therese in Tapio, Haiti. Founded by Father Jean Bien Aime, the ACC's Vicar General in Haiti, the orphanage sits in the hills above Titanyen, about an hour north of Port-au-Prince. The compound is powered by a generator that is nearing the end of its life and needs to be replaced at an estimated cost of $15,000 USD. Please consider supporting them in their need.
