FMS: Where lay people work for peace, justice, and hope.
As an international lay Franciscan mission program in North America, Franciscan Mission Service helps American and Canadian Catholics prepare to serve on two-year international, one-year domestic and 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.
