Mission Statement

Maryknoll Affiliates, while continuing to pursue their own life's journey, commit themselves to the mission goals of Maryknoll in the context of Chapters that gather for prayer, reflection and action. Maryknoll Affiliates challenge one another to witness to mission as a way of life by going beyond borders, locally and globally, walking with the poor and excluded, and striving for peace and justice for all of God's creation.

On Sunday, April 11, 2010, the Maryknoll Office for Global Concerns, Pax Christi International and Maryknoll Affiliates co-sponsored a panel discussion on nuclear disarmament, entitled, For Peace and Human Needs—Disarm Now!

The program was planned in anticipation of the meetings at the United Nations, May 3 to 28, during which ambassadors from the U.S. and other world powers will gather to review the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. Throughout the world people are organizing and raising their voices to encourage their leaders to work together on meaningful steps toward disarmament.

The topics and speakers were: "N.P.T. ABC's" - Dave Robinson, Executive Director, Pax Christi USA
