Our impact is measured by the tens of thousands of lives we touch every year.

More than 240 priests, brothers, seminarians, and novices serve at more than 56 ministry sites in the United States, Canada, and the Caribbean.

Theirs are the eyes and ears, and the hands and heart of Christ. His love is made manifest in the day-to-day care they provide. We cherish the God-given dignity of each person, and we lift them up and transform their lives.

All this is made possible by your generosity.

Our missionaries give:

  • Food to the hungry
  • Shelter to the homeless
  • Skills to the unemployed
  • Welcome to the stranger
  • Safety to the endangered
  • Guidance to the lost
  • Hope to the despairing
  • Healing to the brokenhearted
  • Mercy to those suffering in guilt
  • Reconciliation to the alienated
  • Education to those seeking understanding
  • Love to the abandoned
