MARYKNOLL BROTHERS

Compassion is at the heart of all the ministries of the Maryknoll Brothers. Whether providing life-giving medicines, nutritious food, blankets, or something as simple as a glass of clean water . . . it is compassion at work.

Bringing a wide range of talents to the missionary endeavor, we build missions and schools, work as 

teachers and administrators, develop agricultural and other life-sustaining projects with indigenous people, serve in health-related fields and contribute in numerous ways to the ministry of Maryknoll.

We live out our missionary vocation to spread the love of God to our brothers and sisters in need throughout Asia, Africa and Latin America.  

Although we do not perform sacramental Church ministries, Maryknoll Brothers witness to the Gospel through lives of service and prayer, proclaiming the Word throughout the world.  

Working in parishes, in AIDS ministries, in lay formation programs, and in Social Justice ministries, Maryknoll Brothers actively engage in the greatest global spiritual journey of our time.

A Brotherhood of Mission Specialists

In the early days of Maryknoll, Maryknoll Brothers were skilled tradesmen and were responsible for constructing and maintaining a good number of buildings in the missions. Throughout the years, we have expanded our specializations to include many other areas of mission service including pastoral ministry.

Today, we use our talents not only to build missions and schools, but to work as teachers and administrators, develop agricultural and other life-sustaining projects with indigenous people, serve in health-related fields and contribute in numerous ways to the ministry of Maryknoll.
