We offer support and programs for front-line parish and diocesan ministers to develop skills and resources to form communities of missionary disciples at your parish and school.

See how others have deepened their call as a missionary disciple through Maryknoll's formation programs, immersion trip and resources.

If you're baptized, you are already both a missionary and a disciple.

Our challenge as front line parish and diocesan ministers: helping the people of God realize their vocation as missionary disciples. It begins in their hearts by accepting God's love, it is nurtured and grows in the family, and then it extends out in ever widening circles to the neighborhood, parish, school, workplace and beyond. It seeks encounter and crosses the situational and geographical borders that limit God's love. It brings us together in growing awareness of our interconnectedness with each other through global solidarity. It grounds us in compassion for each other and in our care for our common home.
