Mill Hill Missionaries Procure, Rome

The Rome Procure of the Mill Hill Missionaries is a four-storey building on the top of the Janiculum Hill (Ital. Gianicolo), which is in a large residential area a couple of km south of Vatican city.

The Mission, “to love and to serve”, is lived out by the members and lay associates of St. Joseph’s Missionary Society of Mill Hill in diverse environments among peoples of different languages and cultures; their various apostolates strive to reflect the Society’s priorities as defined by the Constitutions and General Chapter. The ministry of procurator General, in this context, is to create, foster, and maintain a network of relationships within the Church, and with religious and secular entities for the benefit and support of the multiple tasks of the General Council of the Society.

The Procure

The house was built in the 1934 during the reign of King Victor Emmanual lll and was owned by the Gallini family. In 1957 the house was bought from the family by the Mill Hill Missionaries.

This larger house than the previous Mill Hill house in Rome was needed to accommodate the Procurator-General of the Society, whose role in Rome is to liaise between the Society and the Holy See, especially the Vatican Department dealing with the missionary work of the Church, the Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples.

Annual Closure: July – August
Additional Closure 2019: 7 December – 4 January 2020


The Procurator-General

Most Catholic Religious Orders and Societies have a Procurator-General in Rome, especially those whose leadership teams, such as the Superior-General and his Council, are based in another country.

The house also provides accommodation for MHM members, and priests from areas across the world where Mill Hill Missionaries work, who are studying at the various Pontifical and other Universities in Rome.

In 2010 it was decided that after 50 years, the Procure house needed to be updated and renovated. This was done between July 2012 and August 2014.
