Diocesan Mission Council

The Fort Worth Diocesan Mission Council’s purpose is to...

  • Provide knowledge of mission through an advisory and consultative service to the Bishop and the Diocese of Fort Worth, through the mission activities we promote and sponsor as well as the spiritual and ecclesial relationships that arise from this activity
    • providing education and formation about mission
    • encouraging mission activities
    • supporting ongoing parish efforts in mission outreach (within and outside natural borders of parish, diocese, and country)
    • organizing a periodic gathering of all parish mission councils
  • Identify opportunities for mission outreach and help to organize activities in support of world missions
  • Pray and promote prayer for the missions, missionaries and missionary vocations to help strengthen mission awareness throughout our Diocese
  • Serve as a major point of referral and focus for all of our mission projects and outreach, so that these will be more easily understood as an expression of our faith and ecclesial communion
