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.
Happy Anniversary, Pope Francis!
Celebrate the first year of Pope Francis' papacy with these two original products. All proceeds support our mission programs which empower lay Catholics to serve in solidarity with the poor.
