Rome 1957 - The encyclical "Fidei Donum" of Pius XII. In it, he invites bishops to send some of their diocesan priests and committed lay people to help in the missions.

Bishops in particular, as successors of the Apostles, share the re-sponsibility for the missionary work of the Church. Let them do eve-rything they can to help: they should encourage and support mis-sionary vocations in their diocese; they should allow some of their diocesan priests to help the African bishops, a least for a certain period of time" (Pius XII: Fidei Donum).
