Franciscan Friars of the Atonement
(S.A.) We seek to foster “at-one-ment”—
reconciliation, healing, and unity—within the
brokenness of the world. Through our ministries, we walk alongside those who are lost,
wounded and in need of God’s healing in a variety of
ways: We bring healing to those suffering from drug
and alcohol addiction and HIV/AIDS, we nurture
spiritual renewal through the Graymoor Spiritual
Life Retreat Center, and we cultivate authentic charity in our Atonement parishes in the United States
and abroad. In addition to these pastoral works of
reconciliation and healing, we are also devoted to
ecumenism on a global scale, promoting dialogue
and unity within the whole of Christianity and between all religions. In the tradition of St. Francis, we
offer a prayerful communal life with active service
to the Church in the United States, Canada, Japan,
Italy, and England. Contact Graymoor Vocation Office: 40 Franciscan Way, Garrison, NY 10524-300;

Glenmary Home Missioners
(G.H.M.) Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations—including our own!
Glenmary is a community of missionary
priests and brothers with a unique calling to serve
rural mission areas of the United States. Glenmar-ians take up the challenge to serve the spiritual and
material needs of people living in some of the most
impoverished counties in the South and Appalachia. Glenmary Missioners bring the sacraments to
places where frequently less than 1 percent of the
population is Catholic. They evangelize in counties
where over 50 percent of the population is unchurched. Glenmary missioners proclaim and
witness to the Good News of Jesus Christ and the
power of God’s love, mercy, and justice. Glenmary
also has opportunities for long-term lay volunteers
in our missions. For more information or to attend
a “Come & See” weekend, contact Br. David Henley., G.H.M., P.O. Box 465618, Cincinnati, OH
