Missions of Peace

Missions of Peace is an outreach of Franciscan University that sponsors domestic and international mission trips during semestral breaks. Students generously share their time and talent while on mission through various evangelistic and service outreaches, including youth ministries, chastity presentations, prayer services, home improvement projects, village ministries, medical outreaches, and other apostolic endeavors. In effect, students desire to be instruments of the Lord in promoting the Culture of Life. These missionary efforts are one way the University lives out the mandate of Ex corde Ecclesiae that Catholic universities serve as “a living institutional witness to Christ and His message.” In order to advertise, fundraise, or operate on campus, a mission trip must be formally approved by the director of Missionary Outreach.
