Maryknoll – the heart and hands of the U.S. Catholic Church's overseas mission work for more than 100 years – is comprised of four independent organizations.
The Maryknoll Fathers and Brothers serve to witness the call to mission with the poor and those most suffering around the world in concert with the rest of the Maryknoll family:
Maryknoll Sisters give witness to God’s love and devote their lives in service overseas helping the poor, the ailing and the marginalized. Today the Maryknoll Sisters have approximately 423 Sisters serving in 24 countries worldwide.
We welcome U.S. Catholics – single people, married couples and families – to respond to the call of mission. The Maryknoll Lay Missioners serve communities in Africa, Asia and the Americas, helping create a more just and compassionate world.
