At the invitation of the Franciscan friars of Santa Barbara Province, Franciscan Mission Service (FMS) is expanding its mission sites to include a new site along the southwest border of the United States, ministering in both the United States and Mexico. This new mission site will be in the neighboring border towns of Agua Prieta and Douglas.

Below are potential ministries in which missioners will engage:

  • Helping at a community center, particularly with children’s remedial classes
  • Assisting at a drug and alcohol rehab center
  • Providing support at a shelter for migrant families
  • Helping at a cooperative where asylum seekers are trained in a craft
  • Visiting and ministering in detention centers and prisons
