History

In 1937, the Quebec Foreign Mission Society (SME) accepted the mission in the Philippines. This place is where the SME has sent the largest number of its members in its history.

From 1937 to 2011, the Society introduced the Gospel for the first time to various indigenous people in the mountainous regions and actively worked for the growth and autonomy of the philippian Church.

Since 2011, the SME is mainly engaged in missionary animation and a formation program in partnership with the local Church.
