St. Francis Mission is a ministry of the Society of Jesus among the Lakota (Sioux) people on the Rosebud Indian Reservation in south-central South Dakota.
Founded in 1886, St. Francis Mission strives to re-evangelize Catholic Lakota people and bring the Gospel of Jesus Christ to those who have not heard it.
The St. Francis Mission provides direct service to the Lakota people in order to meet the spiritual, educational, social and physical needs of the community.
