After the FAB Experience
Our global connectedness and sense of community – a gift that we have received as missioners - is deeply shared through every Friends Across Borders experience. We frequently hear from those who have joined us on FAB trips how much they appreciate our missioners and their ministries. Through the FAB experience, participants initiate a life-long partnership of witnessing to and proclaiming the Gospel by responding to basic needs and helping to create a more just and compassionate world.
If you are a FAB participant, know that your partnership with MKLM is greatly valued. You are one of our most important resources because you can share your firsthand experiences with the people of your own community.
We value your suggestions and encourage you to share your ideas on how MKLM can reach out to more communities and groups.
You can continue supporting the ministries of Maryknoll Lay Missioners by:
Tell your family, friends, and colleagues about our trips and the wonderful way they allow participants to learn about mission and MKLM while forming friendships with our missioners and those among whom they serve.
If there is a parish, diocese, university, or other group with which you are connected, please consider arranging a meeting with us. MKLM would be delighted to offer a presentation in a classroom, at a community or parish hall, or at Mass. Presentations are tailored to the characteristics of specific venues and audiences.
DONATING TO MKLM
To continue in mission, Maryknoll Lay Missioners needs your financial support. MKLM cannot continue in the compassionate, life-giving ministries you’ve witnessed without adequate funding. Gifts in any amount help to sustain our work.
