Scalabrinian Missionaries working with Church Ministries -

The Scalabrinian Missionaries cooperate with the national services of Pastoral Care for Human Mobility of the Episcopal Conferences of Argentina, Australia, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Guatemala, Philippines, France, Italy, Peru, Uruguay, Venezuela. Their presence has been requested also by the Pontifical Council for the Pastoral Care of Migrants and Itinerants, and by the Pastoral Secretariats of some other dioceses.

In Australia, several of our missionaries have been chosen as Episcopal Vicars for Migration in the diocese they serve, while the Australian Bishops Conference has appointed Scalabrinian missionaries at the head of the Australian Catholic Migration and Refugee Office (ACMRO) for many years.

Fr Maurizio Pettenà is the current Director of ACMRO and he is based at the national office in Canberra.
