Our Mission

Making God’s Love Visible

Maryknoll Sisters give witness to God’s love and devote our lives in service overseas. As nurses, doctors, teachers, theologians, social workers, environmentalists and more, we serve the needs of the people – the poor, the ailing and the marginalized – where we are missioned. Our mission began in 1912, when we became the first group of Catholic Sisters in the United States founded for overseas mission.

Today we have approximately 317 Sisters serving in 18 places around the world.
