About Us

We are missionaries of the world

Divine Word Missionaries is a Catholic missionary society that works among the poor, the neglected and the disadvantaged in more than 80 countries around the world.
For over a century, our priests and Brothers have helped those in need build a better future. Often their work takes them to lands so remote that services we consider necessities do not exist. There is no electricity or drinkable water. Medicine and doctors are in short supply, if available at all. Education as we know it does not exist.

     The work of Divine Word Missionaries is, first and most importantly, to
     preach the Gospel and share the Word of God.  Preaching the Gospel in
     mission communities is done in many ways.  

    Sharing Christ through the Word brings comfort to those
    in need, peace to those in pain and builds vibrant
    Catholic communities of faith.
