Franciscan Missions in Central America
Our Mission Youth, the Hope of the Future
Central America is vibrant with life. It’s a place abounding in the vitality that youth gives. Daily existence on the Franciscan Missions is often a struggle to survive, to get enough to eat, to learn, to find a job, and to make life human and livable. Young people face the challenge, and remain full of hope for better days. Our Franciscan friars assist them as they can to meet the demanding task as joyous, unselfish Christians.
While the Franciscan Missionaries care for the sick, the infirm, and the poor, their major effort is training the youths in whose hands the future lies. Many young men and women in Central America are choosing the priesthood and the religious life as a way of service to God and neighbor. Our friars look forward to the not too distant future when Central America’s own sons and daughters can take over mission responsibility.
Please Care Enough
All this is a reality only because of our benefactors. Their sacrifices make it possible for the friars to begin, and to carry on at a critical moment in Latin American history. With continued help the good work prospers, and grows.
Please care and keep our Franciscan Missionaries working effectively in our Central American missions.
