“If you want to build a ship, don’t drum up people together to collect wood and don’t assign them tasks and work, but rather teach them to long for the immensity of the sea.”

– Antoine de Saint Exupery

Sustainable infrastructure development is a key work of Mission Tradition.

Driven by the belief that universally, people have a right to life and the basic necessities it requires, Mission Tradition focuses significantly on sustainable infrastructure development. We understand that deficient infrastructure often forms the core barrier to foreign development, constraining access to necessities like healthcare, education, and trade markets.

Construction and Rejuvenation = Economic Recovery

Our focus lies on construction and rejuvenation of infrastructure in economically challenged countries, thereby fostering stability and stimulating economic recovery. The results of our work leave lasting impressions within the communities we serve. Historically, we have successfully built schools and churches in foreign apostolates.

The need is vast.

Approximately 2.6 billion individuals in developing regions still live without full-time electricity access. Nearly 800 million people lack clean water access and around 2.5 billion individuals lack proper sanitation. Internet accessibility is limited, with just over 20% of the population in developing countries having access.

Through your generous donations, Mission Tradition aspires to amend these living conditions. Our hands-on/community-oriented approaches have improved numerous lives, but much is left to be done, and we need your support. Join us in our mission to provide hope and a secure future for everyone.

Building to Glorify God & the Community

Mission Tradition strives to help improve the lives of people in developing countries. Our missions, through your donations, provide supplies to renovate, expand and improve the properties and communities in which the missions operate. We are hands-on in our communities. We have built a parish and farm in Nigeria and a school and farm in Colombia. Our mission trips have allowed us to build and repair several homes in Peru.

Giving to Build New Beginnings

Already, our missions have changed many lives. But we can only reach as far as our resources allow—and millions more souls still need our help. You can make an incredible difference! Your gift gives hope and brings a future to all those living day-to-day, wondering what will happen next.

Is it Your Mission?

For the last few years, the St. Francis Xavier Mission Trips have faithfully visited the small village Piura, Peru. The projects include: building and repairing houses, visiting the sick, catechesis, and many other needed projects for the community.
