FMS overseas lay missioners and DC Service Corps volunteers are committed not just to a year or more of service in DC or several years of overseas mission, but to a lifetime of living out faith, peace, and justice in the Franciscan tradition. The photo above shows the gathering of alumni at a  Commissioning Mass. Their commitment to live out their call to mission goes well beyond their time with FMS, and how each missioner and DC Service Corps volunteer does so looks different for each person.
