Chicago

“Before the trip, to me Christ was contained to a church I would visit every Sunday. After the trip, I saw that Christ not only wants me to attend church on Sunday, but to truly love Him with everything I have. Once I realized that and began to live it, my faith life and life as a whole improved tremendously.”

Working alongside Franciscan sisters and priests from Our Lady of the Angels Mission, the trip to Chicago will serve a community in need by giving witness to the hope that we have through acts of service, teaching of our faith, the Sacraments, all while growing in your personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

Come live your Catholic Faith in a deeper way as you serve some of the poorest within our own country, work at a Catholic camp for children, serve others through manual labor, distribute food from the Mission, and evangelize an area that is greatly in need of love.

  1. Each FOCUS Missions participant has the opportunity to fundraise the entire cost of their mission trip.Consider that fundraising allows people who may not have the opportunity to travel on a mission trip to participate in this essential work through you. In another sense, “some give by going while others go by giving.” Allowing others to support us through their financial commitments and prayers is essential to the success of FOCUS Missions!
  2. You will be contacted by your personal fundraising coach soon after you have been accepted on a mission trip to train and mentor you in each step along the way.
  3. Please feel free to contact us at any time by phone or email with your fundraising questions.
