Our History

Our History

Thanks to God and the participation of many people, Misión Maya has managed in these years to strengthen itself as a network of Catholic missionaries and volunteers, who lovingly seek to serve on a daily basis, to meet the main needs of each person who is in a situation of vulnerability, as well as in the support and comprehensive care of the Mayan communities in Mexico.

We want to take advantage of the natural wealth of our state, to promote social and religious tourism among young people. Create awareness of the different realities that are lived in Mexico, where a large number of people lack and suffer today due to lack of love, care, support and understanding. And thus motivate them to go out to meet each brother in need, giving their time with love and seeking to improve their quality of life.

In Misión Maya it has been possible to work as a team with different organizations, movements, apostolates and other institutions that have the same mission and this great desire for service. We believe that when one contributes his strengths and aptitudes for the good of others, great things are achieved, especially the transformation of many hearts that love and feel loved by God and among men. Since 2011 we have received missionaries who donate their time and talent for love of God and others, working on different programs and projects.

Holy Patrons of the Mayan Mission

Saint Francis of Assisi and Saint Teresa of Calcutta

Official Feast of Saint Francis of Assisi

Saint Francis of Assisi and Saint Teresa of Calcutta
Great examples of imitation of Christ, especially attending to the most
poor.

We seek that they intercede for us, to achieve that bond in charity between
brothers of faith and transcend in this life.

A particular devotion to rebuild the Church of Christ, always through the
service to others. We seek to imitate them, love them and always keep them in mind,
with the certainty that following Jesus is achievable for everyone.

Humble servants of God, who left everything to follow him. Saints that
they lived attached to the counsels of the Gospel (poverty, chastity and obedience).
Saint Francis of Assisi and his ardent desire and vocation to restore the Church,
always doing charitable works in community and fraternity.

A saint for all, a man of peace, teaches us how important it is to help
to the Church at all times.

Saint Teresa of Calcutta and her extreme love for neighbor, loved people as
to God and suffered for others. He lived an extreme humanity serving the most
poor of the poor, always with Jesus at the center. And moved by this love and
always delicate in the small details of the here and now.

His faith in God and his compassion for the human being, capable of seeing Jesus in every
person and thus be able to serve them on a daily basis, teaching us that the holiness of
Christian life, is achieved in the simplest, in the ordinary and in smallness.
Both teach us to live humility, the value of sacrifice, simplicity and a lot of love for God.
