Maryknoll Fathers and Brothers share the Good News and God’s love by modeling the compassion of Jesus Christ to those most in need.
We Live and Serve Around the World
The Maryknoll Fathers and Brothers (a.k.a. the Maryknoll Society) is a U.S. Catholic order of priests and brothers that devotes itself to spreading the LOVE of God among those in need across Asia, Africa and Latin America.
Maryknollers move into the roughest fringes of society, living side-by-side with the indigenous peoples, and dedicating ourselves with the generous support of donors to combating poverty, building communities, availing healthcare, and advancing peace & social justice.
Finding the JOY of God's Love in Others
We witness the call to mission shared by all Christians to bring hope and healing to those most in need. Jesus is our model of compassion when we feed the hungry, heal the sick and care for outcasts around the world.
This is how all will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.
Motivated by our faith in Jesus Christ, Maryknollers go to aid and live alongside the poor and marginalized around the world as a demonstration of God’s unconditional love and mercy for all people.
Curious about vocations? Explore a life of mission overseas, finding God’s love in the least among us.
Maryknoll represents the face of Jesus to the poor and uneducated in the many places in the world that you serve . . . and you minister to them with love and with a deep faith.
I am proud to be one of your Sponsors.

In concert with our overseas mission work, Maryknoll Fathers and Brothers serves to be living signs of God’s LOVE and compassion here in the U.S. We seek to build bridges of solidarity while actively forming and animating local communities of ‘missionary disciples’ who answer their personal call of witnessing God’s love to others.
