History

Since 1955, the Quebec Foreign Mission Society (SME) has been training priests in Honduras.   It also set up numerous initiatives that greatly contribute to the vitality of the regional Church.

For example, the Delegates of the Word initiative, founded in 1966, in the diocese of Choluteca, under the leadership of the SME. This initiative is one of the most successful pastoral initiatives in Latin America.

SME also involves itself in social initiatives and testimonies of lives dedicated to the service of the humblest, in popular groups.
