The Diocese of Joliet Missions seek to assist followers of Christ in responding to God’s call to go forth into the world and proclaim the Good News that Jesus Christ is Lord. We connect missionaries to organizations and groups around the world and support them throughout their journey.

Global Missions

The Diocese of Joliet created the Partnership in Mission Ministry to assist those who have a desire to serve, connect and help our brothers and sisters around the globe. Partnership in Mission sends missionaries to help with medical, structural, outreach and educational support in Bolivia, the Philippines, Uganda and the Navajo Nation. In addition, the ministry responds to national disasters in the United States.

We invite you to explore the world of the Diocese of Joliet missionary movement. We have opportunities for everyone to spread the love of Jesus Christ.  For more information, please email

Pontifical Missions

The Pontifical Mission Societies (TPMS) support the proclamation of the Gospel, the building of the Church and the work and witness of mission priests, religious Sisters and Brothers, and lay pastoral leaders. These missionaries provide food, education and medical care to the most vulnerable communities in the Pope’s missions. Through their work, they reveal the compassionate heart of Jesus.
