Glenmary Home Missioners, founded in 1939, is a Catholic society of priests and brothers who, along with coworkers, are dedicated to establishing a Catholic presence in rural areas and small towns of the United States where the Catholic Church is not yet effectively present.

Inspired by the vision of society founder Father William Howard Bishop, Glenmary missioners and lay coworkers strive to:

  • serve the spiritual and material needs of those living in some of the most impoverished counties in the South and Appalachia;
  • proclaim and witness to the Good News of Jesus Christ and the power of God's love, mercy and justice.
  • The story of the home missions is a story worth telling
  • Connecting young people with God
  • Celebrating the joy of the Easter season
