Overseas Lay Mission Program
In the spirit of Saints Francis and Clare, our Catholic lay missioners serve for two or more years in a variety of ministries in solidarity with economically poor and oppressed communities in Latin America and the Caribbean. Our mission sites this year include Bolivia, Guatemala, and Jamaica. Check out and share this video, "Emily's Mission," which offers more information about the FMS approach to mission, namely our focus on ministry of presence.

DC Service Corps (DCSC)
The DC Service Corps Program offers young-adult Catholics the opportunity to work directly with marginalized populations through organizations that meet specific community needs or to work at FMS headquarters providing critical support for overseas and domestic programs. In the community, volunteers may assist with youth outreach, education, support for people experiencing homelessness, and refugee services. At FMS headquarters, volunteers undertake projects in communications, lay mission formation, recruitment, communications, event planning, and development. All DCSC volunteers participate in weekly professional/leadership development, monthly spiritual direction, and bi-annual retreats. This transformative experience is enriched by an intentional living community with fellow volunteers that includes sharing meals, prayer, and fellowship.
