The Maryknoll Affiliates are connected to a wider movement that is popularly called “Maryknoll.” Maryknoll is comprised of three distinct entities: the Maryknoll  Fathers and Brothers (officially known as the Catholic Foreign Mission Society of America), the Maryknoll Sisters of St. Dominic and the Maryknoll Lay Missioners... 

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.

Homily helps

Last year, as part of our "Loving our neighbor in a shrinking world" election year project, Maryknoll missioners wrote homily helps based on our five election year themes: the economy, climate change; migration; sustainable peace; and HIV-AIDS. This year, Maryknoll missioners have again been invited to prepare homily helps from Easter 2009 through Easter 2010, based on the themes of faith-ecology-economy, or peace and sustainable security. Homily helps will be posted on our website, - use the button marked "Homily helps" in the left column to navigate to the page.
