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.
We are delighted to share our story with young people. When a missionary visits your school, classroom, special group, or organization you will learn about our mission, where we serve, the people we serve, and why we do what we do. Presentations and discussions can be tailored to your needs. Here is just some of the information we can share:
- Mission projects
- Global issues and how we respond – food shortage, water scarcity, education, etc.
- Personal vocation story
- First-hand experience in a mission
- What a missionary does
- Artifacts and items from mission
Depending on where you are located in North America we could have a missionary priest, sister, lay missionary, volunteer or lay employee visit you. We are also happy to set up virtual visits through Skype or Zoom.
Our Cincinnati Mission Center is also open for field trips to our mission museum which is full of artifacts from around the world. One of our missionaries will take you on a guided tour giving detailed information. There are also items and clothes for visitors to explore. In December, our animated Nativity Display is open nightly for two weeks and during the day by appointment.
