The Mission of the Maryknoll Fathers & Brothers – Go Overseas and Demonstrate God’s Love & Mercy to the Poor

We are a US Catholic order of priests and brothers who, for over 100 years, have modeled itself after the compassion of Jesus in reaching out to those in the world who are the most in need.

We Live and Serve Around the World

Grounded in the Gospel of Jesus Christ, the Maryknoll Fathers and Brothers partner with local churches to bring compassion, relief, and the message of God’s love to the poor on the fringes of society.

Pope Francis challenges the Catholic Church to create a culture of mission, one in which all Christians respond to their baptismal call to be “Missionary Disciples.” Maryknoll answers this call to mission in the poorest regions of Asia, Africa, and Latin America, and we invite and enable others to answer the call across the US.

We create clinics and hospitals, agricultural and vocational training, feed and care for vulnerable children, provide economic empowerment, AIDS ministry, disaster relief, and we bring HOPE and healing to a world of broken spirits. Explore our mission projects.
