Accompaniment and Other Resources

Need someone to talk to about your plans? Wish you could get more of a sense of what mission is like? We may be able to help you connect with someone who can accompany you in your discernment process, from spiritual directors who can help you decide whether this is right for you at this time, to returned lay missioners who can tell you more about their own mission experiences. For more information, email Karen at
