Mustard Seed

Our Lady of Mount Carmel Missionaries formed in 2011 as a group of young adults who volunteered to do a year of fundraising and faith formation in preparation for their first visit to the Mustard Seed Communities (orphanages) in Managua and Diriamba, Nicaragua.

In the past 3 years, through the generosity of OLMC parishioners, the missionaries have brought nearly 2 tons of donated supplies to the orphanages. The missionaries have also contributed over 1,000 man-hours to help expand both sites by assisting the local workers with construction projects.

Without a doubt, the work is gratifying! However, interacting with the children at each orphanage at the end of a long work day is the most rewarding part of the trip for these young adults. The experience has been life-changing!
