The Missionary Path
So you are interested in the missionary life? That's great! The information below will give you some more background on us.
Divine Word Missionaries profess vows of consecrated chastity, evangelical poverty and apostolic obedience. We learn the languages and cultures of those whom we serve, and are open to leaving our home countries to minister in any one of our society’s global missions.
Utilizing our particular gifts, we minister as pastors, teachers and administrators – or we may use our talents in areas like science, technology and practical skills, living and working side by side with those we serve.
Missionaries move out of their comfort zone and embrace the life and culture of those they serve.
The Divine Word Missionaries is the largest missionary congregation in the Catholic Church with over 6000 priests and brothers working in over 70 countries around the world.
