Compelled by Jesus' missionary mandate, and filled with the Holy Spirit, Family Missions Company missionaries proclaim Jesus Christ and His Gospel to the poor. Always working in concert with the pastors of the Catholic Church, we strive to live the Gospel that we preach. We believe the Lord is calling many Catholic lay people, both singles and families, to serve in foreign missions, "the greatest and holiest duty of the Church."

The need is urgent; we must go!

True Mission or a “Poverty Vacation:” Are Mission Trips a Waste of Money?

By James Franke I’ve heard the argument a hundred times, phrased a hundred different ways.

More than a Feeling: One Missionaries’ Honest Reflection in Calcutta
