This week we wanted to share a bit about the Maryknoll Sisters.  The Maryknoll Sisters were founded on January 6, 1912, and is the first US-based congregation of Roman Catholic women religious dedicated to foreign mission.  After handing over most of their  schools, hospitals, and other institutions to local lay leaders, they work in smaller numbers in more places and in non-structured ministries.  They now number nearly 500 members and serve in a wide variety of ministries throughout the world.come from 30 countries and serve in 25 lands worldwide.

Their Mission: Making God’s love visible.
Maryknoll Sisters work with the poor and disadvantaged in 25 countries around the world. We work with others for justice, peace and the integrity of creation.
