St Joseph’s Missionary Society was founded at Mill Hill, London, in 1866 by Father Herbert Vaughan, later to become Cardinal Archbishop of Westminster.
It is the only major missionary society to have been formed in England. It was one of the first societies to introduce lay missionaries. Its priests, brothers and lay associates work in 27 countries and on every continent.
Mill Hill Missionaries help build up and sustain new faith communities in some of the poorest areas of the world. Among the Society’s main aims are the evangelisation of the poorest, solidarity with the marginalised, working towards a more just society, concern for the integrity of creation, inter-faith dialogue, and assisting local churches in their own missionary outreach.
