German Catholic Mission Council (DKMR)
The German Catholic Mission Council was an association of all Catholic institutions and organisations in Germany that were active in international missionary work (missionary societies, missionary training schools, missionary orders and congregations, diocesan missionary offices). It was in existence until 2012.
- The Mission Council co-ordinated the missionary activities of the Catholic church in Germany, trains German missionaries and journalists working with the missionary media.
- In addition, the Council saw itself as a 'bridge' between the German Catholic church and the young Catholic churches in Asia, the Pacific, Africa and Latin America.
