Who We Need

"We need help!" Even sixty years after Lay Mission-Helpers' founder Msgr. Anthony Brouwers first heard the request, the need is just as great. Mission dioceses around the world need our help. If your skill set isn't listed, it doesn't mean you are not needed. New opportunities are always becoming available. Here are some of our current needs.




High in the northwest mountains of this lush African country sit the dioceses of Kumbo and Bamenda. Kumbo is the smaller of the two cities, with 80,000 residents, is at a higher elevation and is in a more rural setting. Bamenda, a city of about 500,000, is known for its cool climate and scenic, hilly location.

Quito is located in the mountains of Ecuador, and is known for its high altitude and temperate climate. One ministry site is located 45 minutes outside of Quito, in a rural setting serving in small faith communities. The work includes leading Bible reflection times, visiting people in their homes, and training catechists. The other location is in the city, working with children in after-school programs, with the elderly, and possibly teaching English. Quito is a large city with modern conveniences.
