Maryknoll Centennial Symposium

An attempt to summarize the Maryknoll centennial symposium, Church in Mission: Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow
October 6 – 8, 2011
Catholic Theological Union
Chicago, Illinois

The 2-day centennial symposium on "The Church in Mission: Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow" explored the development/revelation of the gift of mission in Maryknoll's history. It's secondary but no less important purpose, according to the Symposium brochure, was the discovery of the gift of mission in one's own life journey.

The Symposium was held from Thursday to Saturday, October 6 – 8, 2011 at Catholic Theological Union in Chicago. Attended by about 200 people, Sisters, priests, brothers, lay missioners, Maryknollers and others, including faculty and students of the Catholic Theological Union, which hosted the gathering.

This report necessarily covers only the plenary sessions; much more information and discussion took place in the break-out sessions. Here are only a few threads of the many riches provided in the presentations.
