Embracing Service: A Journey of Discernment with Mission Doctors

At Mission Doctors Association, our commitment extends beyond sending medical professionals to underserved regions worldwide. We believe in nurturing a community of dedicated individuals who are called to serve, guided by faith and compassion. 


One of the key pillars of our mission is the Discernment Weekends held at our Mission House, where Catholic doctors, dentists, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and their families come together for a weekend of learning, prayer, and discernment.


A Weekend of Purpose and Discovery

Our Discernment Weekends are carefully crafted to provide participants with a complete understanding of what it means to serve long-term as a Mission Doctor. 


Exploring Service Opportunities

During the weekend, participants delve into various aspects of mission service. They learn about the diverse regions where our medical professionals serve, gaining insights into the unique challenges and opportunities each location presents. Additionally, they receive detailed information about our formation program, a comprehensive four-month residential program designed to equip Mission Doctors with the skills and mindset necessary for effective service.


Nurturing Spiritual Growth

Central to the Discernment Weekends is the emphasis on spiritual growth and discernment. Participants have dedicated time for prayer and reflection, allowing them to deepen their connection with God and discern their call to mission service. Through group discussions, and personal reflection, they explore the intersection of faith and service in their lives.


Learning from Experienced Mission Doctors

One of the highlights of the weekend is the opportunity to hear from veteran missionaries who have dedicated their lives to serving communities in need. These seasoned professionals share their stories, insights, and challenges, offering invaluable wisdom and guidance to those considering a similar path. Their firsthand accounts provide a glimpse into the realities of mission work and inspire participants to embrace the journey ahead with courage and conviction.


Fostering Community and Camaraderie

Beyond the informative sessions and opportunities for prayers, the Discernment Weekends foster a sense of community and camaraderie among participants. Through shared meals, informal discussions, and leisure activities, individuals and families form connections that often blossom into lasting friendships. The supportive environment encourages open dialogue, mutual encouragement, and a sense of belonging within the Mission Doctors family.


Charting a Path Forward

As the weekend draws to a close, participants leave with a renewed sense of purpose and clarity about their call. Armed with knowledge, inspiration, and a deeper understanding of what it means to be a Mission Doctor, they return home empowered to take the next steps in their journey of service. Whether they choose to pursue mission work immediately or continue discerning their call, they do so with the assurance that they are part of a supportive community that will walk alongside them every step of the way.
