Become a Missioner

As baptized Catholics, we are called to mission. Maryknoll Lay Missioners offers U.S. Catholics the opportunity to respond to that call by working in partnership with people experiencing poverty or marginalization in Africa, Asia, or Latin America. Our missioners serve for 3.5 years (2.5 years for certain placements), with the option to renew.
