Scarboro Missions is a Society of Canadian Catholics, priests and laity, motivated by the Spirit, who dedicate themselves to the person, teaching and mission of Jesus Christ as expressed in his words:
"I have come that they may have life and have it to the full." (John 10:10)
Founded in 1918 by Fr. John Mary Fraser to train and send priests to China, the China Mission College grew quickly and evolved. Today we are known as Scarboro Missions, a society whose members serve not only in China, but elsewhere in Asia, Latin America, the Caribbean, Africa and Canada.
The prophetic vision of Vatican Council II reawakened the baptismal call of all Catholics to actively participate in the mission of Christ. It especially revealed the vital witness of laity and the unique gifts that they offer to further God's Reign in the world. Since 1974, single men and women, as well as married couples, have been invited to join with Scarboro priests as global missioners for Christ and His Church.
Today we go forth as priests and laity in a variety of new ways, as missioners united by a common spirit and a passion to make known the love of God that is transforming all peoples and cultures.
