Review for FRANCISCAN MISSION SERVICE OF NORTH AMERICA, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Besides serving on the board of directors, I have the opportunity to see this organization up close. My Secular Franciscan Order fraternity meets at the FMS mission house once a month. I get to see first hand the women and men, some young, some not so young, who are preparing to serve the poor and marginalized overseas. The FMS 13-week training program each fall prepares the missioners for their two years of service, and equally important, the three-week re-entry program is a model for how to help returning missioners reintegrate and continue their service back home. This is a program that changes lives, both for those who are served around the world, as well as those who are serving, for the rest of their lives.
