We Go Where Others Won’t

Helping Those That Others Can’t

We Do It Together

Over 150 Years Serving the Poor

We, the PIME Missionaries, are Catholic Priests and Brothers who dedicate ourselves to be lifelong messengers of the Gospel to those who have not yet heard the Word of God.

PIME (The Pontifical Institute for Foreign Missions) was born in 1850 from a burning passion for the poor, and the need to witness God’s love to those who had never known it. 

So, Servant of God Bishop Angelo Ramazzotti, along with Pope Pius IX gave life to the first Italian Missionary Seminary. Eventually, in 1947, PIME was invited to the United States by Archbishop Cardinal Mooney and eventually settled in the Archdiocese of Detroit.

Just as it was in those first days in the country, our Mission remains the same: to spread news of the silent struggles of our brothers and sisters in the missions and to connect them those whose spirits burn with the need to help.

Lasting Change

Children are subject to their environments.  Consequently, in many of the countries where we work children are often victims of a poverty that they cannot impact or escape. However, Sponsorships at a Distance offers the opportunity to impact the life of such a needy child, a disabled person, a young adult or even a seminarian. You can be a positive force, and help us make a big change, for just a small donation each month.

to Transform Lives

We develop genuine Catholic communities through inter-religious dialogue and charitable work, all done with a focus on social justice. Above all, we bridge the gap that isolation, both physical and spiritual, can cause. We provide clean water, sustainable food sources, electricity, shelter, warm beds, medication, hospitals, schools, and even new places of worship. To sum it up: we don’t spread the Word of God, we witness it to others.
