Maryknoll’s Mission of Mercy Continues…
Nepal isn’t in the headlines anymore. After all, the big earthquakes that hit the country in 2015 are now history.
The Maryknoll Fathers and Brothers responded immediately with emergency aid and have continued to help rebuild — thanks to the generosity of our many donors!
Please support our work with an extraordinary act of mercy.
The Maryknoll Society — a Catholic order of priests and brothers who work in service among the suffering and poor in over 20 countries worldwide.
Our mission is to live and proclaim the Gospel by modeling Jesus’ compassion to people of various religious and cultural traditions in an effort to build a world of justice, peace and understanding.
Father Joseph Thaler leads missions of mercy throughout the central district of Nepal, spearheading the rebuilding progress:
- Hundreds of new homes have been built
- Six new schools opened this past year
- Construction sites supplied with bricks, piping, roofing, bathroom fixtures, windows and doors
The people of Nepal are as determined as ever to rebuild, and we’re beside them every step of the way. Will you join us to bring HOPE to the people of Nepal?
Help us change the world with your gift for Maryknoll missions in Nepal and our missions of mercy in more than 20 countries around the world.
Together we can further the recovery for the children and families of Nepal—and aid many more around the globe who suffer or live in poverty.
Father Joseph Thaler, M.M. has tirelessly led the recovery and rebuilding work in Nepal. With 125 homes near completion, we still have a long way to go.
Our goal is to build 1,700 homes before the monsoon season.
The school where the sewing training program was run was badly damaged by the quakes. This is one of Maryknoll’s projects that help differently-abled persons learn sewing skills so they can earn a living for themselves and their families.
With a deep commitment to helping the Gajuri village, the school re-opened after a year and now has 15 students.
Within a few weeks after the earthquake, Father Joseph and his team opened temporary classrooms in buildings that were still standing and considered safe. Now six earthquake-resistant schools have opened, complete with blackboards, desks, books, and bathroom facilities.
The children are back to normal.
Thank you from our Fathers and Brothers around the world.
A Prayer for Nepal
God of mercy, we ask you
to continue to bless the people of Nepal
with Your presence and protection
as they continue to struggle
to recover from the devastating earthquakes.
Send them help in the form of
volunteers willing to stand by them
and work with them in their hour of deepest need.
Shower them with all the spiritual
and material blessings they require
to recover and to heal while knowing
You are always there with them.
O Lord of heaven and earth multiply our gifts that the good people of Nepal may find hope and joy as they rebuild their homes, their neighborhoods, and their lives.
~ Father Joseph R. Veneroso, M.M.
