Deacon Mission Partners

Blessings to the whole deacon community!  Become a driving force for local and global evangelization.  Connect your local diaconal ministry to the Church's worldwide mission.  In the Maryknoll tradition, we are missionary disciples, men and women within the diaconal community, who strive to meet God through encounter with people on the situational and geographic margins.  Through accompaniment, service, and sharing stories and experiences we are mutually transformed in the Joy of the Gospel to go forth as prophetic witnesses of God's love.

we serve you so that you can serve others

Central American Pilgrimage Retreat for ordained members of clergy is scheduled for Jan 8-19, 2024 and we are accepting applications.  Click here to learn more and here to apply!
