St. Francis in the Fields is committed to our Lord’s commandment that we “love our neighbors as ourselves,” reaching beyond our own parish. Here are some of our outreach efforts:

Mission to David, Kentucky

A team of adults and youth (7th-12th grades) travels to David, KY each year during the summer to participate in a Vacation Bible School for the community and work projects around the David School.


Mission to the Dominican Republic

Adults and youth (9th-12th grades) travel to the Dominican Republic each summer to work on work projects in the community of Samangola and help with a VBS.


Porch de Salomon mission

Each year, St. Francis in the Fields sends a mission team to Guatemala to do a project in conjunction with Porch de Salomon, a unique and progressive non-profit ministry which, since 2005, has loved, served, and encouraged “the lost, the least, and the last” (and others!) of Guatemala’s Lake Atitlan basin.
