Diocese of Orlando Mission Office Annual Collection
Please support us to continue this ministry in our Sister Diocese in the Dominican Republic.
The Mission Office cultivates peace by fostering a relationship based on love, faith, trust, hope,and respect between the Diocese of Orlando and The Diocese of San Juan de la Maguana in the Dominican Republic. The Mission Office strives to empower the people of our sister diocese, and improve their lives. As well as to educate and encourage the members of the Diocese of Orlando to use their time, talent, and treasure to reach out to those in need. We operate five schools and organize education, construction and medical mission trips each year. Your support brings happiness to the 407 elementary and middle school children attending school at our five sites which continue to rank among the best in the country. Young missioners at “Campo de Fe” learned about humility and service by washing the feet of the young participants, as Jesus taught.
