Founded in 1987

Incarnate Word Missionaries (IWM) was founded in 1987 because six enthusiastic lay men and women aspired to go out into the world and serve as missionaries. With the help of the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word, these trailblazers were able to plug into the important ministries and adopt the missionary spirit and Incarnational Spirituality of the Sisters.

Since 1987, the Incarnate Word Missionaries program has helped lay men and women discern their call to serve God in the presence of the poor and marginalized, and to prepare for this unique and transforming experience of service.

The people we serve have been blessed with the many talents and gifts of those who have answered this call, and those who have served have been even more blessed with the gifts and wisdom of those they serve.

It is a transformational experience unlike any other that life holds.
