“I lit the match that lit the fire!”

Pauline Jaricot 900
On May 22, Pauline was be beatified, raised to the order of Blessed by Cardinal Tagle, the prefect of the Congregation for the Evangelisation of Peoples, in Lyon, France. This is a key milestone on her journey towards being recognised as a saint.


To celebrate Pauline’s legacy, Catholic Mission invites you to take part in the different events happening internationally and locally. The streaming of the beatification in Lyon will be available on our website; the live stream is provided by KTO, the French-speaking Catholic channel. In Australia, we was celebrated the beatification at the Woman with a Mission Retreat in Bunbury, on 21-22 May, the Mass will be live streamed on the Facebook page. To register for the conference, visit our website. More events and resources are available on our website.


Inspired by Pauline’s legacy, Catholic Mission has worked on bringing the Living Rosary to the digital age, by providing accessible online resources to help people to reflect on their actions through their prayers. Click here to access The Living Rosary. The Living Rosary (catholicmission.org.au)


“The Living Rosary is an invitation to come together and pray for the work of Mission,” says Fr Brian Lucas, National Director of Catholic Mission.


Pauline’s vision is the cornerstone of the projects supported by Catholic Mission, which is currently working with the Church in Ethiopia to establish a community farm project in the rural area of Emdibir, aiming to create a sustainable solution to bring hope to families and children suffering from malnutrition.
