Maryknoll Lay Missioners’ Sending Ceremony will be livestreamed here:


Here is a recording of Maryknoll Lay Missioners’ Dec. 8 Covenant Mass:

We are delighted that on Dec. 8 and Dec. 11, 2021, we will bless and send into mission 13 new Maryknoll lay missioners. Coming from 10 different states, this year’s class, Maryknoll Lay Missioners’ largest since 2005, will serve in six different countries. To find out more about them, please see their introduction and a video at Meet Maryknoll Lay Missioners’ Class of 2021

On Wednesday, Dec. 8, at 2 p.m., the candidates will sign a “Covenant” that will commit them to mission as members of Maryknoll Lay Missioners.

On Saturday, Dec. 11, at 2:30 p.m., they will be sent forth into mission. The heads of all four Maryknoll entities (Maryknoll Sisters, Maryknoll Lay Missioners, Maryknoll Fathers and Brothers, and Maryknoll Affiliates) will participate in the Sending celebration in the Chapel of the Maryknoll Fathers and Brothers in Ossining, New York.
