Maryknollers Celebrating Jubilee, 2019

Maryknollers Celebrating Jubilee, 2019

Maryknoll is celebrating its tradition of “Called~Sent~Transformed”
Called by name in community through baptism
Sent by the Catholic Church in the U.S. in missionary discipleship
Transformed by love through relationships and thankfulness

On Sunday, June 30, 2019, we celebrated 37 Maryknollers commemorating their ordination to the priesthood or Final Oath as a Maryknoll Brother.


Every year we celebrate the missioners who each have a unique story and a personal definition of what being a missioner entails. It is the combination of these beautifully lived lives that, together, create the ever expanding, surprising, and thriving narrative that is Maryknoll.

Feasting in the Spirit

Spirit of God, move me,
motivate me,
inspire me to rejoice always
in the gifts you bring.

Spirit of Jesus,
in my hands, feet, mouth,
heart, speech, action,
let my very being
pulsate with your life.

Spirit of God
all around us and acting through us,
lead us to freedom
as we soar to new heights.

Give us courage and strength,
teach us to lose ourselves in your Self
and become eternally one in peace.
