FMS: 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.
Celebrate #GivingTuesday with Franciscan Mission Service. Making a donation toward our life-giving ministries is a wonderful way to celebrate anyone on your Christmas list. Plus, you can skip the crowded stores while we take care of the details. When you donate in someone's honor, we send them a handwritten note in our "Madonna of the Missions" card, designed by Lee Lechtenberg who served with us in Bolivia.
If you'd like for your honoree to receive their card by Christmas, please donate by December 16.
