Association for the Propagation of the Faith


The APF is the principal mission support organisation of the Catholic Church. It’s objective is to ensure that young churches have the necessary funds to build churches and schools, to lead people to learn about Christ and build a better world.

In England and Wales funds for the Missions are collected through the famous Red collection Boxes. These can be found in 200,000 homes and they have helped raise millions of pounds for the missions. The collections from the Red Boxes and World Mission Sunday enable the Church in England and Wales to share in spreading the Gospel in each of the 1,062 mission dioceses in the world.

The APF is a Registered Charity No. 1056651

The Stourbridge branch of the AFP is looking for help with its Mission. For more information contact Diana Bloore at:
