Energy. Excitement. Joy!


While no three words can really capture the impact of any event, these three do a pretty good job of capturing some of the event impressions shared by our 2018 World Care Benefit guests:
  • Having met our goal of selling 180 tickets and being at full guest capacity, with friars from numerous provinces, many returned missioners, and generations of the FMS family, there was no denying that St. Francis Hall was filled with a remarkable energy.
  • With new sponsors, an expanded silent auction, and an opportunity to pledge both prayerful and financial support during the event itself, there was excitement as the FMS family offered up support for our missioners’ and volunteers’ ministries.
  • Finally, celebrating Fr. Iggy Harding’s lifetime of service to God’s people and hearing the reflections of returned missioner Allison Dethlefs brought us deep joy–and hope.
If you weren’t able to attend the event in person, we thank you for celebrating with us in spirit, and we invite everyone to continue celebrating now. How? By sharing about our programs and inviting others to consider serving with FMS. At this point in our recruitment season, these are some of the best ways you can spread energy, excitement, and joy for our ministries.  
Start by sharing our newest video, first shown at the event, and invite friends, family, co-workers, and acquaintances to check out FMS.  
Thank you for all the ways you support us!  We look forward to seeing you at next year’s event, if not sooner.
