Maryknoll is offering missions of mercy…
Almost Home Made by Hand Finally, Clean Water
In South Sudan and Kenya, people are dying from hunger and many have left home for refugee camps because of violent conflicts over food.
Living conditions are desperate.
Despite the risk, Maryknoll missioners are distributing emergency supplies, and ministering to the sick. We will never stop caring for the people of East Africa.
Prayer for South Sudan and Kenya
Blessed Mother Mary, we pray for
the starving children and adults of Mother Africa
who are growing too weak to cry or complain,
to grow and to live.
Blessed Mother Mary, help us to hear
their call for food and peace and health.
Help us to help them whose faith
and love are known to you alone.
Blessed Mother Mary, you gave your Son
Who gave us His body as Blessed Bread
so the world might have new life in Him.
Help us feed our African brothers and sisters
before it’s too late.
We urgently pray in Jesus’ Name.
~ Father Joseph R. Veneroso, M.M.
Maryknoll cares about witnessing our Catholic values in ways that support the dignity of all life.
The people of East Africa are hopeful that village and family life will be restored… so that schools can stay open… emergency aid can arrive safely… and that better farming methods will produce dependable crops. Will you join us to bring HOPE to the people of East Africa?
Help us end the suffering with your gift for Maryknoll missions in South Sudan, Kenya and 20 other countries around the developing world where people live in extreme poverty.
Please join us in mission.
Together we can witness the compassion of Our Lord by serving families in greatest need and by offering the healing grace of our faith.
