New York City

“There are different ways I can find satisfaction in life, but I believe spiritual satisfaction through service to the Lord and His people is the highest form of pleasure man can attain. There is nothing more important and noble than investing in the Kingdom of Heaven, and this mission trip reiterated that to me. Everything about this trip continues to motivate me in my ongoing commitment to be a better person today than yesterday.”

Serve in the shadow of modern day saints as we work directly with the Missionaries of Charity and the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal in New York City!  The Missionaries of Charity are currently serving around the globe and you will recognize them as the religious order of Mother Theresa of Calcutta.  The robe clad Franciscan Friars of the Renewal are the famed proclaimers of the “New Evangelization” in some of America’s poorest inner-city environments.  Our service will be right in their distinct apostolates, which includes working in homeless shelters, shelters for homeless single mothers, and even street evangelization!  Are you discerning your vocation? – What a great opportunity for hands on experience of religious life!  Do not miss out on this amazing opportunity!

  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.
