Mission Station

A religious mission or mission station is a location for missionary work.


Historically, missions have been religious communities used to spread belief in Christianity to local indigenous populations. Missions often provided the logistics and supplies needed to support that work.

Catholicism's support for the Spanish missions in the Americas played a key role in the Spanish colonization of the Americas. Catholic mission communities commonly consisted of churches, gardens, fields, barns, workrooms, dormitories, and schools. They were often located near a good water supply to support the local population.

In Dutch Catholicism

During the time of the Holland (Batavia) Mission (1592 - 1853), when the Roman Catholic church in the country was suppressed, there were neither parishes nor dioceses, and the country effectively became a mission area in which congregations were called "stations" (staties). Statie refers to both the congregation's church and its seat or location.
