The Lay Mission-Helpers Association is a Los Angeles-based Roman Catholic organization but with a global reach. We send lay Catholic professionals to do missionary work.
After a four-month residential formation program in Los Angeles, our lay missionaries serve a minimum of three years in a mission diocese. We serve at the invitation of mission bishops to fill a requested need. In addition to sharing their professional skills, Lay Mission-Helpers witness their faith by how they live their lives and becoming involved in the community.
We serve in the areas of education, healthcare, social services, administration and more. You can help us send Teachers who will help children and youth receive the type of education that will allow them to escape the cycle of poverty. You can help send Nurses who are teaching future nurses to be in charge of rural clinics, and Physician Assistants who provide life-saving healthcare to children and adults. You can help families have access to services that will meet their immediate needs and uphold their dignity through the work of Project Managers and Administrators.
Lay Mission-Helpers provides a comprehensive residential formation program prior to mission and round-trip airfare, health insurance and a small monthly stipend while in mission. You can make it possible for us to share our gifts, live our faith, and help change the world by becoming our Partner in Mission.
If you are a lay person and feel a call to mission, look us up online at www.laymissonhelpers.org and let’s begin a conversation. You can help by praying. We need your prayers! Pray for those whom we serve and pray for us.
Finally, you can help by donating today. No matter the size of the gift, every little bit helps. And when given with faith, miracles can happen. You and us, together, we can accomplish great things in the lives of people in Uganda, Ghana, and Papua New Guinea, and Honduras, knowing that God is never outdone in generosity!
Thank you for your support today. May God bless you abundantly and keep you and your loved ones safe as you share what you have with those who have even less.
