Giving Honor to Mothers Around the World

We dedicate the month of May to Mary, our Society’s patroness, in thanksgiving for the gift of her Son; and to honor mothers everywhere.

Maryknoll Fathers and Brothers bring hope to mothers raising children under conditions of extreme poverty and abuse.

Care for the mother, and you care for the child – care for the child, and you help build stable families with a more hopeful future.

Give a Gift that Gives Back and Brings HOPE to Mothers Overseas

Celebrate a Mother in your life (including yourself!) with an Charitable Gift Annuity.

It provides a lifetime of income, while changing lives for generations to come.

You can honor your own mother — and all the mothers we serve — with your gift to Maryknoll.

“We pray to the Madonna to protect us and in times of spiritual upheaval the safest place is under the Madonna’s cloak. Indeed, she is the mother who looks after the church. And in this time of martyrs she is the protector, she is the mother.”

Pope Francis: Morning Homilies (Orbis Books 2015)

Maryknoll Missions for Mothers and Children

The women and children who live at Maryknoll’s La Posadita del Buen Pastor in Lima, Peru are victims of poverty and human trafficking.

Father Joseph Fedora, M.M. makes sure they receive proper medical care, counseling for trauma, and supportive, safe housing until they are ready to live on their own.

In Tanzania’s Shinyanga Diocese, Father Edward Schoellmann, M.M. runs a kindergarten-daycare center for children who would have no place else to go when their mothers are at work.

Also in the Shinyanga district, Father Hung Dinh, M.M. provides an education for AIDS orphans—over 300 children in all, who have lost one or both parents.

Children (Tanzania)

Give a mother hope — for herself and her child — and you give her the world…

Pope Francis challenges us to respond to extreme poverty as followers of Christ – your prayers and gifts are important in answering his call for compassion.

Your support helps us witness the Gospel, especially where mothers and children are at grave risk.
