Serving the world’s forgotten
For 150 years, the Comboni Missionaries have traveled to nearly every corner of the world, sharing the good news of Christ and working to protect the dignity of all people.
Founded in 1867 by St. Daniel Comboni, the Comboni Missionaries are an international Catholic organization dedicated to ministering to the world’s poorest and most abandoned people, often working in unstable political climate, in the midst of extreme poverty.
Despite these challenges, our missionaries are dedicated to their mission of serving God’s people.
Ministry in North America
We have been carrying out ministries in North America for more than 80 years. Our focus has been on working in parishes among Hispanics, African Americans, Appalachians, and Native Americans, adapting our ministries to the needs of the times.

Comboni Missionaries’ Perpetual Mass Association provides support for all Comboni Missionary apostolic works at home and in the missions. A special Mass is offered daily for all the members enrolled, both living and deceased. They share in the good work and prayers of almost 4,000 Comboni Missionaries worldwide.
I have only one life to consecrate to the salvation of these souls: I wish I had a thousand to spend them all to such a purpose.
