Elvira Ramirez

Director of Mission
As director of mission, Elvira oversees lay missioners in nine different countries. She makes sure that they have the support and resources they need for their ministries. Prior to coming to Maryknoll Lay Missioners, Elvira served as the executive director of Catholic Charities in the Diocese of Stockton, California. Her new responsibility is a return to Maryknoll because from 1982 until 1993 she served as a Maryknoll Sister, primarily working with youth and young adults in Tanzania.
