             The Missionary Society of St. Paul, (or MSSP as it is widely known) was founded by Mgr. Giuseppe Depiro in 1910. Its Motherhouse dedicated to St. Agata is in the centre of Rabat, a town neighbouring the ancient city of Imdina.

                     Beneath the beautiful Chapel of this motherhouse, where eighteen members of the Society live, lie unique and well preserved catacombs. A most interesting Museum adjoins the Chapel. The motherhouse is part of a large complex which also houses a secondary school for boys - the Missionary College of St. Agata, a sports complex; a youth centre which also acts as a meeting place for CAM youths and married couples.

                     At Santa Venera (Malta) the Society, following Mgr. Giuseppe De Piro footsteps, is responsible for a boy's home called St. Joseph home.  In Birkirkara (Malta) the MSSP run a Centre for Doctrine, housed a St. Dominic Savio 's Oratory. Lately, a retreat house was opened at Zebbug Gozo with the aim of encouraging Pauline Spirituality.

                     The Missionary Society of St. Paul works amongst Maltese emigrants in Australia, the USA and Canada. More evidence of this missionary spirit is found in Peru' where members have been working for the last 30 years in a number of parishes and pastoral zones round Lima, Arequipa and in Aplao. They carry out pastoral and social work amongst the poorest of people.

                     The Society has also been present in Pakistan for these last fifteen years, working in Karachi, Lahore and Faisalabad. Here they take care of two Catholic parishes; run a seminary and work in the social educational and medical field in an effort to improve matters for the poor. Two members of the Society have also set up a new mission in the Philippines which although still in the first stages is already attracting a lot of people.
