Kingston, Jamaica (Men Only)

“Going on a FOCUS Mission Trip opened my spirit to a new dimension of faith. I saw the work of God’s love in action through the accepting nature of all the people and how they immediately shared their faith with us. They gave me a sense of purpose and understanding of the message of God’s love. Despite our differences in culture and society, we were able to bond together and work side-by-side through love.”

Join the fastest growing religious order in the Caribbean –The Missionaries of the Poor—as they work with the most marginalized of human beings.  The Brothers welcome visitors to come and join them in their work, spirituality and life of prayer.  Their mission is to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ primarily by performing the corporal works of mercy and through liturgy, preaching, music, teaching and sacraments.

The Brothers “desire to be a manifestation of the presence of Christ in the world as He continues to live and care for the poorest.”  The Missionaries of the Poor’s corporal works of mercy are directed towards those in the lowest rung of the social ladder.  Their service is manifested in housing the homeless, feeding the hungry, taking care of street children, and caring for those with diseases like AIDS and leprosy.

Come and be Christ for others and spread His Good News through this FOCUS mission!

  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.
