We invite you to watch this video of Maryknoll Lay Missioners’ 2021 World Mission Sunday celebration. The Oct. 24 prayer service celebrated our call to mission and was livestreamed on Zoom, Facebook and YouTube. During the gathering, we presented the third annual Bishop John E. McCarthy Spirit of Mission Award to Marty Roers, Maryknoll Lay Missioner Class of 1995, and current co-director of the Justice Office of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet in St. Paul, Minnesota.
Three current lay missioners offered reflections from Bolivia, Tanzania and the U.S.-Mexico border. We also honored three lay missioners for their years in mission with Maryknoll Lay Missioners: Heidi Cerneka (25 years), Sami Scott (25 years) and John O’Donoghue (15 years).
