Mission trips across the U.S. and throughout the Western Hemisphere
“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called children of God.”
Missions of Peace, a student outreach of Franciscan University, sponsors domestic and international mission trips during breaks. Students generously share their time and talent while on mission through various service outreaches—youth ministries, chastity presentations, prayer services, home improvement projects, village ministries, medical outreaches, and other apostolic endeavors.
Through those activities, but also through their personal witness of the love of Christ, students seek to be instruments of the Lord in promoting the culture of life. These missionary efforts are one way the university lives out the mandate of Ex Corde Ecclesiae that Catholic universities serve as “a living institutional witness to Christ and his message.”
The trips are organized, planned, and funded by the students themselves, but they must be approved by the director of Missionary Outreach in order to advertise, fund raise, or operate on campus.
