Deacon Mission Partners

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.

which restores meaning to our lives,

how can we fail to share that love

with others?
