Always a Missioner

Returned missioners continue lives of mission

Mission doesn’t end for our lay missioners when they return home. The global vision gained during their years with Maryknoll Lay Missioners infuses the rest of their lives, and many continue to work for positive transformation here in the U.S. and abroad, using their talents, skills and experience to better the lives of others.
