We are a world-wide group of more than 3,500 priests, brothers, sisters, and laity from diverse cultures who have dedicated our lives to following Christ’s example and St. Daniel Comboni’s missionary ideal of evangelization.

Comboni Missionary priests and brothers believe God’s call to mission is as strong today as it was 2000 years ago when Jesus told His apostles, “Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation” (Mark 16:15). We live a vowed life and dedicate ourselves to taking the Gospel to the poorest and most abandoned wherever they are, no matter how dire their circumstances. Jesus advocated for the poor, blessed them, listened to them, and loved them “even unto death.” We, as Comboni Missionaries strive to do the same.
In all the places we serve we share our deep faith in God through service:
