The Maryknoll Sisters “are a multicultural community of women religious missioners committed to
living the Gospel of Jesus within the mystery of the Universe Story.” (16th General Assembly, 2008)
 
Their Mission: “To participate in the mission presence and activity of the universal Church so that God’s reign of peace, justice and love may be proclaimed and witnessed to throughout the world.”  (Maryknoll Sisters Constitution, p.3 #4).
 
Their Ministry: Give witness to God’s love as nurses, doctors, teachers, theologians, social workers, agronomists, writers, veterinarians, community development specialists, artists, environmentalists and pastoral workers…Sensitive to local needs, the Sisters search out and train for whatever form of ministry serves the community that invites them to share in its life and practice.
