Franciscan Mission Service is now accepting applications for their April 1-9, 2017 trip to Guatemala. The application deadline is Friday, February 24, 2017. Applications will be accepted after that date until all spots are filled.
This is your chance to join in visiting Franciscan missioners and their local partners at their ministries in Guatemala. Participants will encounter and reflect on the economic and social realities faced by Guatemalans through participation in discussions with FMS missioners and local Guatemalans, group learning, prayer, reflection, and cultural excursions.
Like all Franciscan Short-Term Mission and Global Awareness Trips, this experience includes daily prayer and reflection and pre-trip preparations such as webinars.
This trip promises to be a transformational experience that will inspire participants to live out the Gospel in their home communities and foster the Franciscan values of peace, justice, reconciliation, and care for creation.
