Under the auspices of FMO, Fr. Herald Brock, CFR also preaches at parish missions and other events throughout the US .
FMO participates in 8-10 international mission trips each year to Jamaica, Honduras, Haiti and other countries in Latin America and Africa.

“I am a mission on this earth; that is the reason why I am here in this world.
We have to regard ourselves as sealed, even branded by this mission of
bringing light, blessing, enlivening, raising up, healing and freeing.”
