We Live and Serve Around the World

Our Rich History

When two American priests from distinctly different backgrounds met in Montreal in 1910, they both recognized that the Church would not flourish until it sent missioners overseas, so began formulating plans to establish a seminary for foreign missionaries.

The Maryknoll Family

The Maryknoll Fathers and Brothers are one of four entities within the grander Maryknoll organization.

Our Mission Archives

Maryknoll Mission Archives is the official repository of historical records of the Society, the Sisters and Lay Missioners, their corporate affairs, the mission lives of their members and the notable activities of communities in which their members served.

Maryknoll Office for Global Concerns

The Maryknoll Office for Global Concerns (OGC) represents the entire Maryknoll family, leveraging the collective global voice and experience of Maryknoll to actively participate in important debates about public policy in the United Nations, the U.S. and other governments, the World Bank and International Monetary Fund, and the corporate world.
