These four societies each received the official title of "Pontifical" work in 1922, and their central administration was transferred to Rome. National offices exist now in more than 120 countries. Today, this "family" of mission societies is the Church's primary means to inform Catholics about her worldwide missionary work and encourage their active participation - through prayer and sacrifice - in those efforts. Almost two centuries after our story begin, it continues - a story of all of us together, committed to the worldwide mission of Jesus.
