Our Ministries

The Claretian Missionaries are rooted in the Catholic tradition and provide a mutually supportive environment to strengthen the faith commitment of the communities in which we serve. Mindful of commitment, we are impelled to serve the marginalized by promoting social justice programs. Our primary ministries are in the United States and Canada.
