Although a large part of what we do here at FMC involves short term mission groups and stateside evangelization, our primary goal and objective is to train and send out full time foreign missionaries “to the ends of the earth.” We firmly believe what Pope John Paul II wrote in his encyclical Mission of the Redeemer: “God is opening before the Church the No believer in Christ, no institution of the Church, can avoid this supreme duty: to proclaim Christ to all peoples.horizons of a humanity more fully prepared for the sowing of the Gospel. I sense the moment has come to commit all the Church’s energies to a new evangelization and mission to the nations. No believer in Christ, no institution of the Church, can avoid this supreme duty: to proclaim Christ to all peoples.” (We are Catholic Missionary families and lay missionaries engaged in proclaiming the Gospel in works of evangelism and service to the poor in foreign lands.)
God is calling many people today to proclaim the Good News. Do you feel called to be a full time missionary? We hope and pray that if you do, you will respond generously to that call with your whole heart, with your whole life. Yes, it is a great challenge, but those of us who have given our lives as missionaries know that there is no better life than one given completely in service to the Gospel.
From our full time missionaries, we require a minimum two-year commitment, beginning with three months of training and formation at our mission base in Louisiana, and continuing with mission service in a foreign country. If you are interested in becoming a full time missionary, contact our office. Jesus is begging His Father to send laborers into the vineyard – the task is urgent, come with us into the fields!
All Catholic families and laity are called to the apostolate of evangelization and sanctification of our world today. There is a remarkable growth in the numbers of Catholic lay missionaries and families with children, giving their lives to announcing the Gospel and serving the poor in foreign missions. Contact us for additional information; we will talk and pray with you. Read John Paul II’s encyclical on foreign missions, Mission of the Redeemer.
