Mission Statement

We Are Lay Mission Helpers,

called by baptism to live our Catholic faith,

to share our gifts and to learn from others,

as we walk with those who are poor in the world.


Lay Mission Helper Association recruits, trains, sends and supports Catholic lay missionaries to serve the poor all over the world. Missionaries currently make a three year commitment. We recruit individuals ages 18-62. Families can serve overseas with children ages 10 and younger. People use their gifts and talents and are placed in jobs that are best suited for them. Nurses work as nurses in African hospitals and are used to train nursing students. Engineers work to help villages get clean drinking water. Hospital administrators work as hospital administrators. People are needed to teach students. Lab technicians are needed. People are needed with computer skills to teach others. One volunteer is producing a cable television show and works as an audio visual technician.

This organization was not prepared to send myself and 3 others to Kenya. We ended up with no work visas and I had a difficult time finally getting all my papers in order so I could leave the country ( I had malaria and needed to get back for medical attention but was delayed several weeks due to LMH at first indifference and then incompetence. The director ( Janice England) actually suggested to my father that perhaps paying off officials to get visa might be the way to resolve it ( i.e.: bribing). ARE YOU KIDDING ME? My father, an attorney was beyond speechless. I do believe that would constitute a felony even in Kenya. The matter was finally resolved after several weeks after constant calling Janice from me and my family. ( the American embassy said if I was arrested they could do nothing as I was illegally in the country. An organization that sends folks overseas to work should, in my option, first and foremost respect the laws of those countries and certainly protect their work
