We Thank YOU!

Explore some projects that you helped fund this year:

Father John Barth, M.M. has created a healthcare model in South Sudan that is treating hundreds of poor children and adults with eye disease, including eye cancers.

Thanks to Father John’s missionary commitment, three nurse candidates have begun opthalmic training in Tanzania. When they complete their studies, they will return home to open a primary eye clinic in an area of South Sudan that has never had blindness prevention services before.

In Taiwan, Father Joyalito Tajonera, M.M. provides emergency assistance, counseling, and spiritual care for a migrant worker community. Father Joyalito counsels migrants and offers shelter to those who have no place else to go.

In Lima, Peru, Father Joseph Fedora, M.M. is grateful for your prayers and support that make God’s mission through him possible. Besides his work at AIDS shelters for mothers and children, Father Joe visits patients in hospitals, prisons, shelters, and in their homes.

In Phnom Penh, Cambodia, Father Robert Wynne, M.M. provides a comprehensive program for desperately poor families.

He oversees an early childhood development program that focuses on language and math, two important skills for future job seekers.

At the parish of Cristo Resucitado in Curico, Chile, Brother John Nitsch, M.M. says the parish soup kitchen is a blessing for the 150 people who stop by for lunch six days a week.

He also works with youth groups looking toward a future career in social work, healthcare, and teaching. Some of his “graduates” are already working for government programs or non-profits that address the needs of the poor.

JOIN US in God’s Mission of Hope

Devotees lighting candles (Bolivia)

“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing so that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”

Romans 15:13

No Hands but Yours

People yearn for the touch of hands
that help and heal and do not harm.

People long for love that liberates
and lasts as long as life itself.

People cry to heaven for justice
wondering who listens or answers.

People hunger for a word of truth
in a world drowning in deception.

People search for peace
not knowing it can only come
through prayer and reconciliation.

People confuse certainty with faith
and sacrifice freedom
on the high altar of security.

God asks,
“If not you, WHO?
If not today, WHEN?”

~ Father Joseph Veneroso, M.M.,
from God in Unexpected Places
(Orbis Books 2007)

You can make sure that tomorrow is filled with promise for the world’s poorest.

Your gift to Maryknoll will help bring the compassion of Our Lord—and a reason to hope—to children and families in need.
