You Are a Blessing from God

With your prayers and support, you can help us build a better world of justice, peace, and understanding.

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.

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.”


~ Father Joseph R. Veneroso, M.M.

JOIN US and your gift to Maryknoll will make sure that all those we serve — in every one of our mission initiatives throughout the world — are cared for with the respect they deserve, and receive the compassion of Jesus Christ.
