Comboni Missionaries


Established: 1867

Mission: We, the Comboni Missionaries of the Heart of Jesus, North American Province, seek to follow in the footsteps of our founder, St. Daniel Comboni, by ministering to those he loved as the world’s “poorest and most abandoned people.”

Serving Our Community: Founded in 1867 by St. Daniel Comboni, the Comboni Missionaries are an international Catholic organization dedicated to ministering to the world’s poorest and most abandoned people, often working in unstable political climates, in the midst of extreme poverty. In the 42 countries we serve, we strive to bring people closer to God by meeting people where they are. We live among the people to share in their trials and joys. Our work includes running local parishes; establishing and running feeding programs, schools at all levels, hospitals, medical clinics, work programs and job training, clean water projects; and so much more. We also fight for justice and peace for every human person through collaboration with other congregations, local governments, NGOs, and organizations.


Fr. John Converset, Fr. Brian Quigley, Fr. Jose Pimentel, Fr. Chris Aleti, and Fr. Rudolfo Coaquira.

Other Ways to Help:

Contributions welcome:

Our main goal is to help support missions around the world. Last year the generosity of our donors made it possible for us to provide $450,000 to support overseas missions such as: boreholes for clean water, feeding programs, hospitals and clinics, job training programs, and more. And of course, please pray for our missionaries and the people they are serving.
