Franciscan Mission Service:
Where lay people work for peace, justice, and hope.
As an international lay Franciscan mission program in North America, Franciscan Mission Service helps Catholics prepare to serve on two-year international, one-year domestic and 1-2 week short-term mission opportunities. Missioners live a simple life in solidarity with their partners: the poor and oppressed in Africa, Latin America, North America and the Caribbean.
Our latest class of missioners has arrived!
started August 28 for our five new missioners, and will continue for
the next three months. This is a time packed with lectures, prayer,
volunteering, community bonding and simple living, all in an attempt to
better understand who they are and what God is calling them to do.
Your prayers can help them during this time of transition. Be a part of their mission by becoming a formation prayer partner.
