About Us

We advance and sustain the Catholic faith in Canada from sea to sea to sea by the following:

Our History

Founded in 1908 as The Catholic Church Extension Society of Canada.

“To turn all your zeal solely and exclusively to the good of the citizens” – Pope Pius X

1908

On September 23, through the initiative of Monsignor E. Alfred Burke, the Catholic Church Extension Society of Canada is founded.

1910

On June 9, St. Pope Pius X issues an Apostolic Brief formally constituting the Society and recognizing it as a Pontifical Society.

The name of the Society is changed to Catholic Missions In Canada to better reflect its operations and goals.

Our Governance

Catholic Missions In Canada is overseen by a Board of Governors.

The Board consists of the Apostolic Chancellor (Archbishop of Toronto), five bishops from across Canada, and five Catholic lay persons.
