We Welcome You To Mission

You are a blessing from God

Thank you for joining the Maryknoll Fathers and Brothers in mission and for your prayers.  We welcome you as a fellow missioner who rejoices in the Good News of our faith—the promise of salvation in Christ.

Our Fathers and Brothers look forward to praying with you, remembering your Special Intentions, consoling you in times of difficulty, and celebrating your happiest moments.  This is how our family cares for each of its members, and now our family includes you.

The Maryknoll Society  — a Catholic order of priests and Brothers who witness the Gospel in more than 20 countries by serving the poor and people in greatest need.

Our mission is to proclaim the Gospel by modeling the compassion of Our Lord among people of different religions and cultural traditions.  This is the way we work to build a better world of justice, peace, and understanding.

Prayer for the Family

On the top of Mount Tabor, Lord,
You were transfigured in the sight of
Peter, James and John who exclaimed
“It is good for us to be here.”
Even as Your glory shown through Your death
helped me find Your loving hand
even in the sorrows and hardships of life.
When my family loses sight of Your presence
and quarrels and misunderstandings cloud our minds
call us back to Mount Tabor, Lord,
and give us the strength and grace we need
to overcome every crisis
and to recognize each member of the family
as Your special blessing.
Gathered around the family table
let each one of us confess and believe,
“It is good for us to be here.”

Amen.

~ Father Joseph R. Veneroso, M.M.
