This year, students from St Mungo’s Academy in Glasgow and Taylor High School in Motherwell were able to travel to Zambia wit Missio Scotland and witness not only the love and dedication provided by our priests and religious there, but also to see first-hand some of the fantastic projects that wouldn’t have been possible without the support of the Pontifical Mission Societies (PMS).
