Bringing God’s people of Magadan, Russia into a deeper relationship with Him through acts of love, service, and sacrifice.
We are a team of American college students who spend the summer evangelizing and serving our brothers and sisters in Russia. From June through July, we seek to serve our fellow brothers and sisters through acts of love, service, and sacrifice. This is the sixth year for Magadan Mission. Magadan Mission was started in 2013 when three students at Franciscan University felt a call from God to do mission work in Russia. They sent out an email to several Catholic priests in Russia, expressing this call they received on their hearts. Fr. Michael Shields, an American priest from the diocese of Anchorage Alaska, responded. That summer the three students assisted Fr. Michael at his parish in Magadan, Russia. They sought to be a light in the community by bringing joy and love to those they encountered. In essence, they shared Jesus with the people of Magadan through acts of love, service, and sacrifice.
For the past five summers, the mission has continued. On mission we missionaries feed the hungry, repair homes, visit the elderly, share English, and catechize. Our primary focus, however, is to bring Jesus to God’s people of Magadan through friendship evangelization. By entering into deep friendships with those in Magadan, we bring Jesus to those we encounter, thus bringing them hope, joy, and peace. Please pray for our mission, because prayer is the driving force and the strength of all our missionary efforts. Secondly, we ask for any support you can give by donating through our donation tab. Thank you for your support!
