Rebuilding homes, Restoring lives, Renewing hope

Founded in 2005, St. Francis Builds teams have gone on 48 trips building homes and schools in 11 different countries and rebuilding homes impacted by natural disaster and chronic poverty in 7 different states.

In 2023, Fr Mike and other Franciscan Friars joined members of Franciscan parishes to work side by side with students and parents from the local community to build two schools in Mexico. In the second build, a technical high School, Levo International joined us to build and introduce hydroponics into their curriculum.  Here is a video of that experience of a multicultural, multigenerational Church in mission.
