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.

Two New Board Members

Please join me in extending a warm welcome to our two newest Affiliate Board members, David Schaffner and Rita Peters! Rita joins us from Florida Space Coast and David hales from California Central Coast. Both of them  were strongly supported by members of their Chapters as well as their local Regional Coordinators in the nominations process. I know that they each will bring many gifts to the work of the Board and we are most grateful that they have accepted to be of service to the Affiliate movement. It is particularly exciting to note that they join us from relatively new Chapters and so will bring fresh vision and new ideas. 

We look forward to working with them and are most grateful that they have agreed to serve on the Board.
