Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

At this time of year, we focus on celebrating and sharing the miracle of the Resurrection and the promise of transformation. Yet we now find ourselves in the middle of great uncertainty. The coronavirus has touched many of our families, friends and neighbors directly –even here at Maryknoll-- and changed the routines of our daily lives.

Though much has changed, the work of mission persists. In this pandemic, risks exist everywhere, even in the Asian, African and Latin American villages and cities where Maryknoll Missioners remain at work. More than ever they need your support to keep sharing the Gospel and God’s love while helping build communities of faith.

We all need some support; I invite you to submit your special intentions below so that we can remember them and you in our daily prayers.

May God bless you,

Fr. Raymond Finch, M.M.
Superior General

Special Prayer Requests

Please submit your prayer intention(s) below and we will be sure to include them during our daily Masses here at Maryknoll as well as in our private prayers. May God grant you all the strength and the grace you need during these unsettling times. God bless and keep you always!

Your prayer requests will be added to the intentions offered at our daily Mass at Maryknoll, NY, as well as being mentioned during our Morning & Evening Prayer and daily rosary.

Maryknoll Fathers and Brothers share the Good News and God’s love by modeling the compassion of Jesus Christ to those most in need.

We Live and Serve Around the World

The Maryknoll Fathers and Brothers (a.k.a. the Maryknoll Society) is a U.S. Catholic order of priests and brothers that devotes itself to spreading the LOVE of God among those in need across Asia, Africa and Latin America.

Maryknollers move into the roughest fringes of society, living side-by-side with the indigenous peoples, and dedicating ourselves – with the generous support of donors – to combating poverty, building communities, availing healthcare, and advancing peace & social justice.

Maryknoll Mission

Finding the JOY of God's Love in Others

We witness the call to mission shared by all Christians to bring hope and healing to those most in need. Jesus is our model of compassion when we feed the hungry, heal the sick and care for outcasts around the world.

This is how all will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.
