Each fall, a new group of mission candidates come to train with us in Washington, D.C. This time of formation is essential in preparing their next two to six years of working for peace and justice abroad.

The three months are packed with workshops, lectures, paper work, homework, retreats, prayer, reflection, volunteering, community bonding, and simple living. They’re examining who they are and what God is calling them to. They’re preparing to travel to a totally new place to live and serve in solidarity with the poor. They’re saying goodbye to friends and family.

Your prayers can help them during this time of transition. Be a part of the mission by becoming a formation prayer partner.

How it works:

  1. Take the pledge by signing up below.
  2. Pray for our new missioners during their training (late August to mid November) in Washington, D.C.
  3. Your name and intentions are recorded in our prayer partners book and placed in our chapel. Our missioners will pray for you during their daily prayers and weekly Mass.
  4. Receive a weekly email update about how the missioners are doing during training. Stories and resources will help you explore your own call to service, whether its to serve home or abroad, full-time or part-time. Please add info@franciscanmissionservice.org to your address book to ensure delivery.

You can sign up as an individual, or as a family, fraternity, parish, class, or community.
