Fr. Joyalito’ project with Maryknoll short-term volunteers will help young Americans have a first-hand experience in the mission of Maryknoll Fathers and Brothers. The Vocation exposure and discernment program will help vocation prospects in their decision to enter Maryknoll, and the Care of Creation education and advocacy will support Maryknoll and church’s mission on ecology. With your help, Fr. Joy will be able to support the Maryknoll Short Term Volunteer program, the Vocation Discernment and Pastoral Exposure program, and the mission of Maryknoll in Care of Creation.

Care of Creation – to support and implement Maryknoll’s mission education outreach to care, protect, educate, advocate for the Care of Creation. With the rising awareness of Corporate Social Responsibility, many international corporations have published supplier policy standards, CSR reports, vulnerable worker policies, as well as declarations against modern slavery. While these policies aim to protect the rights of migrant workers and the communities, sometimes supplier factories hide these abuses and violations. The goal of this project is to eradicate human rights and environmental abuses in global supply chains and have a sustainable world that is equitable for all workers and communities by connecting migrant workers voices to those with the power to make change.

“For in him were created all things in heaven and on earth, the visible and the invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers; all things were created through him and for him” Colossians 1:16
