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 US and abroad, using their talents, skills and experience to better the lives of others. In fact, we believe that once a missioner, always a missioner, which is why we call our program for returned missioners “ALWAYS A MISSIONER.”
