Each summer, a special group of Salesian missionaries travels to the United States. In parishes across the country, they will share personal and inspiring stories of their work on behalf of marginalized youth and families around the world — and we invite you to join them.
“While we strive to communicate — in letters, magazines, bulletins and emails — the depth and breadth of our mission and work, nothing can replace the first-hand accounts of our missionaries,” says Fr. Gus Baek, director of Salesian Missions. “In more than 130 impoverished countries around the world, these missionaries are literally in the trenches — offering comfort, new hope and pathways out of poverty to some of our most vulnerable fellow humans.”
This work is only possible thanks to the caring compassion of our friends here at home. Through their participation in our annual Mission Cooperative Program (MCP), Salesian missionaries from various communities in several countries will share stories that demonstrate the power of your support.
Below is a complete list of parishes hosting Salesian missionaries this summer. Should there be one near where you live, we encourage you to visit and learn how your generosity is making a very real and tangible difference in the lives of children and families in need.
