“The particular churches in America are called to extend their missionary efforts beyond the bounds of the continent. —It would be a mistake not to encourage an evangelizing effort beyond the continent with the excuse that there is still much to do in America”
-St. John Paul II
IMF has developed a unique Parish-to-Parish Mission Program, connecting Catholic parishes in the U.S. with impoverished parishes in developing and under-developed countries. During this time, parishioners commit to supporting the project through their prayers, financial support, parish development, and participation on a mission trip to the community itself.
Linking diverse skills, expertise and resources found in Catholic parishes with our database of current or developing needs, IMF facilitates a wide range of projects which reflect our commitment to the intellectual, physical, psychological, and spiritual needs of those we assist.
THE BEAUTY OF PARISH-to-PARISH MISSIONS
By joining IMF you’ll:
- Capitalize on this paramount moment in history as we fulfill Pope Francis’ call of action to answer the cries of the poor.
- Evangelize beyond the continent as individuals and parishioners actively engage in evangelization and renewal throughout the world
- Create solidarity as these missions provide an opportunity for solidarity between the Catholic Church in America and the Catholic Church in developing and under-developed nations.
IMF is here to accommodate the talents and professional skills of a variety of parishioners. From Teachers and Doctors, married and single, old and young, there is a place for everyone to participate in the Church’s missionary activities!
