Currently, we are aware of 11 missionaries from our diocese serving in the U.S. or abroad. If there is someone in your parish serving as a missionary for at least a year, please let the Mission Office know. We also provide advice and contacts for Catholics who are seeking short or long term service.
We encourage daily prayer for the needs of these missionaries who have left the comforts of home and family to spread the Gospel throughout the world.
