For this week’s Mission Highlight, USCMA would like to celebrate the work of the Maryknoll Lay Missioners, the third member of the Maryknoll family. As the largest lay Catholic missionary sending organization in the Unites States, the Maryknoll Lay Missioners is a Catholic organization inspired by the mission of Jesus to live and work in poor communities in Africa, Asia and the Americas, responding to basic needs and helping to create a more just and compassionate world.
In their own words, “As missioners we recognize that we strive together for justice, peace and fullness of life. We care for the sick, comfort the afflicted and support the poor and marginalized. We have taken up the work of creating sustainable social, educational, healthcare and economic change for those in need around the world. We are committed to working with others for structural change to bring about a more just and compassionate society.”
They are also a recognized leader in overseas cross cultural mission preparation.
