Maryknoll Fathers and Brothers
(M.M.) The Maryknoll Society—a
U.S. Catholic order of priests and
brothers—helps people overseas build
communities of faith. Many Maryknollers serve in
pastoral ministry. Some work in war zones with
refugees while others minister to the sick, the elderly, orphans, or others in need in Asia, Africa,
and Latin America. As joyful missionary disciples
of Jesus Christ—motivated by love and challenged
by the Gospel—we reach across borders, geographical and situational, and build bridges of
solidarity among the poor and marginalized that
reflect God’s merciful love. Are you called to a life
of mission, to live the sacraments and preach the
gospel by feeding the hungry, healing the sick, and
reaching out to outcasts? Contact us. Fr. Mike
Snyder M.M., Vocation Director, P.O. Box 305,

Missionaries of the Holy Family
(M.S.F.) The Missionaries of the
Holy Family were founded as a religious community in 1895 in Holland. Today, over 1,000 priests and brothers
serve in 22 different countries. We base our community life on the model of the Holy Family who
lived simple lives in faithful response to the will
of God the Father. We emphasize the Holy Family of Jesus, Mary, and Joseph as the standard of
holiness for all families. We strive to live a missionary spirit by bringing the Gospel message
wherever it is not sufficiently proclaimed. Here
in North America, we are involved as priests and
brothers in parishes, schools, homes for the
aged, and missions. Our work reflects the care
and concern we have for family life. May God
bless your family! +JMJ+ Contact: Vocation Director, 3014 Oregon Avenue, Saint Louis, MO
