We welcome U.S. Catholics – single people, married couples and families – to respond to the call of mission. Our ministries serve communities in Africa, Asia and the Americas, responding to basic needs and helping create a more just and compassionate world.
While continuing to pursue their own life’s journey, the Maryknoll Affiliates commit themselves to the mission goals of Maryknoll in the context of Chapters that gather for prayer, reflection and action. Learn more.
Founded in 1912, the Maryknoll Sisters were the first religious order of Catholic women founded in the United States for overseas mission. Today, we number approximately 500 women from diverse cultural backgrounds and who serve in 25 countries.
