This Mission is an independent part of the Old Catholic Church of The Netherlands (Union of Utrecht) and focusses the church's attention on the mission of the wider church.
Projects sponsored are:
Egypt, Coptic Orthodox Church
The "Daughters of St. Mary" is a religious order founded in 1965 following an initiative of Bishop Athansios of Beni-Souef, a Diocese South of Cairo in Egypt. The Aim was to create an active community, which would engage in social projects.
The community grew from an initial 4 members to now 80 under the leadership of Sr. Agapie, the Mother-Superior.
On the compound of the convent a clinic, a creche, a kindergarten, a home for the aged and an institution for mentally retarded can be found.
In North Cairo they founded the "Salaam (Peace) Centre", and they also run the diocesan conference centre on the other side of the Nile in Baayaad. In addition social work is undertaken in villages nearby.
The Mission Saint Paul contributes to the extension of the creche and kindergarten.

In 3 years time the project must be able to stand on its own feet.
