Welcome to SEDOS

SEDOS (Service of Documentation and Study on Global Mission) is a forum open to Institutes of Consecrated Life, which commit themselves to deepening their understanding of global mission. It encourages research and disseminates information through its Bulletin and Homepage, the annual SEDOS Residential Seminar (beginning of May), public conferences, and workshops.
SEDOS began during the Second Vatican Council when nine missionary societies began to meet in an informal way in Rome to exchange information and opinions on mission in the Church. The guiding light was Father Mondé, Superior General of the Society of the Missionaries of Africa, together with other eight Superiors General. The group made a significant contribution to Ad Gentes at the Second Vatican Council, which was greatly influenced by their discussions with members of the Roman Curia.
