Home Mission

The Home Mission Desk sits within the Department for Evangelisation and Catechesis and acts as a point of reference for evangelisation in dioceses, movements and Catholic organisations in England and Wales. It also helps to develop and produce resources for the formation of adult faith and coordinates additional projects as instructed by the Department. The Desk is also responsible for responding to enquiries that come in to the Catholic Faith Enquiry Office.
