About Us

Maryknoll Affiliate Logo

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.

Office for Global Concerns Outreach to Maryknoll Affiliates

OGC LogoWe are please to let you know that, after a discussion with Interim Director Kathy McNeely and Jim Noonan MM, associate for Asia and disarmament, of the Maryknoll Office for Global Concerns (MOGC), the Office for Global Concerns will begin a new outreach efforts to the Maryknoll Affiliates. Jim will be contacting Maryknoll Affiliate Chapters in the form of phone calls and visits to encourage Affiliate participation at "Maryknoll on the Hill", which will take place from May 15-16, 2012, and to establish ongoing relationships.

When he visits a Chapter, Jim envisions a session of about 1 to 1½ hours that would include a personal invitation to "Maryknoll on the Hill", a listening session, an overview of the work of the Office and time for discussion, questions and answers.

The MOGC addresses issues raised by Maryknollers overseas and Justice and Peace Commissions of dioceses. The MOGC does not have the capacity to address all issues, but Kathy and Jim hope to continue building and strengthening partnerships between Affiliates and the Office, and enhancing the Maryknoll network.
