Diocese of San Jose and Maryknoll Partnership in Montego Bay, Jamaica

"A diocesan priest from the San Jose Diocese in California is igniting mission sparks in Jamaica, hoping to fan missionary fires in his home diocese 3,000 miles away." Maryknoll Magazine, November 2007

Last year the Diocese of San Jose and Maryknoll embarked on a historic mission endeavor by partnering to send missionaries to Montego Bay, Jamaica. Father Tim Kidney was sent from the San Jose Diocese and Father Leo Shea from the Maryknoll Fathers & Brothers to work with the Montego Bay Diocese to develop formation programs for lay leaders. It is hoped that the groundwork they lay will develop into a long-term relationship between the Montego Bay and San Jose dioceses, including opportunities for groups and individuals to participate directly in this exciting mission opportunity that will greatly enrich both churches.

The work of Fathers Kidney and Shea was featured in the November issue of the Maryknoll magazine. Click here to view the article.

A box of 200 magazines has been sent directly to all parishes in the Diocese including the Spanish bilingual magazine, Revista. These magazines are available for use in the parish.

In addition, the Mission Office of the Diocese of San Jose and Maryknoll Fathers and Brothers are teaming to provide an array of mission education resources including posters, videos and DVD's, and speakers who are available to come to the parish.
