Since the 17th century, the Paris Foreign Missions Society (MEP) has been sending priests to the Far East, both Asian and the Indian sub-content, in the name of the gospel.

From generation to generation, the Society's missionaries have taken part in an amazing adventure: a human, cultural and religious journey that gave birth to the churches of Asia.

Today, and amid widely varying socio-political and religious contexts – both Buddhist and Confucian countries, industrialized and developing nations – the Society's priests carry on with the work of the first missionaries, started 350 years ago: as the bearers of the good news, clearing the way into new territories, as spiritual instructors and through communal involvement, they are writing the story of the universal church in Asia.
