Mission Trip to Puerto Rico

Dec. 29, 2019—Jan. 11, 2020

Apply by Nov. 1

Serve the Poor & Discern God’s Call


This 8-day mission trip is not only to support the Friars’ ministry of serving the poor through your gift of manual labor (painting, etc.), but also to explore religious life (in a non-pressured way) with the Franciscan Friars of the Atonement. After service during the day, evenings will include fellowship, prayer and faith-sharing—including presentations on what it means to be “called by God.”

A mission & discernment experience for single, Catholic men, 19-30, considering a call to religious life.

  1. Able to humbly step into another culture as learners,
