Wisconsin’s Missionaries of the Word evangelize with outdoor-centered apostolate

The Missionaries of the Word, a new religious community for women, has been launched in the Diocese of Green Bay, Wisconsin. The community superior is Mother Mary Catherine, formerly a member of Mother Teresa’s Missionaries of Charity, and the community’s mission is to bring the Gospel to teens and young adults “in the spirit of the New Evangelization.”

“We want to listen to, be with and love young people so that we may lead them to Jesus,” Mother Mary Catherine said. The sisters’ primary apostolate is assisting with Green Bay’s Catholic Youth Expeditions retreat apostolate for youth and young adults (see sidebar below), and they hope to grow the community so they may “go wherever God wants.”
