Glenmary Home Missioners is a society of priests, brothers, and lay co-workers who seek to provide access to the Catholic faith and outreach ministries to the poor in rural Appalachia and the South. Our founder, Father William Howard Bishop, established Glenmary in 1939 with the dream of making the Catholic Church present everywhere in the United States. Oftentimes, Glenmary is the first Catholic ministry presence to enter the county in which we establish a mission. In many cases, the poverty rate of the local population is twice the national average. Glenmary has established and successfully returned over 120 mission parishes to the care of their local dioceses over our 80+ year history. In addition to providing access to the Catholic sacraments and faith formation through our mission parishes, Glenmarians also participate in a wide variety of innovative outreach ministries to meet the varied needs of those in their mission counties. For example, we provide hospitality on the Appalachian Trail, oversee afterschool programs and transitional housing for the homeless, collaborate with ecumenical food pantries, perform home repairs for the poor, visit the sick and imprisoned, and build relationships with fellow Christians of other denominations. By donating to a religious community headquartered in your own backyard in Fairfield, you make it possible for the Catholic faith to flourish in the mission fields right here in the United States. On behalf of those we serve, THANK YOU for your generous support of our home mission ministry.
