The Maryknoll Fathers and Brothers is the Catholic Foreign Mission Society of America.

 It is dedicated to spreading the Good News of Jesus Christ through love and hope by serving those most in need across the world.

Our Mission

We Live and Serve Around the World

We are a Catholic Society of Apostolic Life of missionary priests and brothers who, for over 100 years, have modeled ourselves after the compassion and love of Jesus Christ in reaching out to those in the world who are most in need.

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 by sharing the good news of Jesus Christ to those who have not heard it, and by ministering to the hungry, sick, and marginalized in more than 20 countries across the globe.

Our work involves direct evangelization and various pastoral ministries, healthcare, education, agricultural and vocational training, HIV/AIDS ministry, disaster relief, and many more in service as heralds of God’s LOVE and HOPE in the poorest areas around the world.
