We've Chronicled Our Missions of Mercy for 100+ Years

In 1907, Father James Walsh began publishing 'The Field Afar' (later renamed the 'Maryknoll' magazine) to avail the stories and joy of overseas mission to Catholics throughout the US.

Today, we continue to showcase the global tales of Maryknollers, as well as spark the call to mission in the US, through a variety of publications and media

One of the most widely-recognized Catholic publications in the world, Maryknoll magazine conveys to American Catholics the needs, realities, and joy of mission work around the world.  We capture inspiring stories of Maryknoll’s missions of mercy, and the people with whom we serve overseas.

Each year, the Maryknoll Magazine holds an essay contest for middle and high school students around the US – the 2015 essay theme, “Mission of Mercy,” asked students to share real-life inspirational stories about mercy and convey the lessons learned about the need for mercy in the world.

We received close to 6,500 entries of passionate, extraordinary mercy moments that ranged from heart-touching stories to life-changing experiences. Check out the 2015 Essay Contest Winners
