Missio has announced the upcoming beatification of one of their founders, Venerable Pauline Jaricot, on 22 May 2022 in Lyon, France. This will be a day of prayer and celebration for the global Missio family, and the whole Church.
Born in 1799, Pauline Jaricot was a remarkable young lay woman with formidable faith. Through her resolution and strong beliefs, she founded Missio’s Association for the Propagation of the Faith (APF) aged just 23 years, which makes her one of Missio’s founders.
The England and Wales branch of the APF was formed in 1825 and Pauline’s legacy continues here today through the Red Box scheme, which is a partnership between Missio and the Mill Hill Missionaries.
Pauline Jaricot had a passion for helping to support missionaries around the world. She believed that if we all give a little and pray a little, we can share God’s love throughout the world.
