To join the Missionaries of Merciful Love you must meet the following requirements:

1. You must be a member of the Catholic Church.* 

2. You must be at least 18 years of age. 

 *If you are Christian, but not Catholic, you can join in our life and mission and live the Rule of Life, but you won't be an official member or be able to receive the Holy Eucharist at mass or go to the Sacrament of Reconciliation  unless you decide to make a formal profession of the Catholic faith at some point.  

Seven Steps to Joining the 
Missionaries of Merciful Love

1.  Fill out the MML Inquiry Form

2. Take the MML 40 Day Spiritual Preparation course. 

3. E-mail us at  to let us know that you have finished the online 40 day course and we will send you the MML Member's Kit.  This includes a free PDF of the novitiate book "A Year of Merciful Love,"  If you prefer a hard copy of the novitiate book you can purchase it for $25.00 which includes shipping and handling. 

4. After we have responded to your email you can then make the Prayer of Personal Committment  and live the Way of Life of the Missionaries of Merciful Love for one year.  This is called the MML Novitiate.  

5.  If, after one year has passed and you discern that you are called to the MML permanently, email us again at and we will send you a wooden MML cross and a PDF of the MML Member's Certificate.  

6.  After you have received your MML cross you can now make your  Prayer of Permanent Commitment to the Missionaries of Merciful Love.  If possible, make your commitment in a church with a priest as a witness and he can bless your cross.   You can print and write the date and church name where you will make your profession and then have the priest sign as a witness and you will sign your name also. 

7.  Congratulations!  You are now a member of the Missionaries of Merciful Love. Now live out your vocation each day and follow the MML Members' Duties as listed on our website.   We look forward to joining with you on this spiritual journey.
