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.

Christmas Card with Mary and ChildA Promise Kept

This child was born.
The whole earth cries for it.
Dark earth, waiting for its Star.
As a Promise kept,
this Child of God returns shining in the night
bold beacon
bearing a wisdom both ancient and new
leading us toward love
and a future for which we
have so long hoped.

Sr. Elizabeth Terbock. MM

In joy and blessing we celebrate 100 years of Maryknoll Sisters in Mission (1912-2012). The revelation of God's love to the people of the world at the Epiphany marks our history and our future.

May the Christ Child gift you with wisdom, love and a future of hope and peace.
