Diverse people coming together in the local Chapter form a core community of support, while connecting with other Chapters and Maryknoll Missioners around the world.
Central to all Maryknoll Affiliate Chapters is coming together in prayerful gatherings and committing to Spirit-filled service wherever they work.
We believe in a world that is made richer by its cultural and religious diversity, whether in countries around the globe or in our own communities.
Maryknoll Affiliates are committed to solidarity with the poor, oppressed and excluded persons of the world through actions for justice and peace.
Not So Far Afield is a bimonthly publication of the Maryknoll Affiliates. The name is a play on the title of the original Maryknoll Magazine: The Field Afar.

One of the most exciting things about attending the Maryknoll Affiliate Conferences (MACs) is the opportunity to talk with people about what is happening in the countries where they live. While you’re at the MAC, don’t miss visiting with these people:
Kitty Madden – Having spent the last 34 years in Nicaragua, Kitty can fill you in on current conditions there.
Renate Schneider – To learn what Haiti is like these days, Renate can report on changes since her article in the January NSFA.
Peruvian Affiliates – Several have applied for visas. (Pray for their success.)
Rosa Beatriz, Rosa Maria de Leon, and Anabella Penados – They can talk about various aspects of mission in Guatemala.
Sun Shil Theresa Kim – She can speak to what it means to be an Affiliate in South Korea.
Fred and Jet Goddard –What has our previous executive coordinator been doing in Philippines?
There will probably be even more worldwide representatives, not to mention folks from other regions of the US.
Be sure to enhance your global vision by attending MAC 2020 and joining in the conversation. Better yet, enrich that conversation by encouraging other Affiliates you know to attend as well.
El Papa Francisco en varias ocasiones y con mucho entusiasmo nos ha invitado a unirnos en una “Revolución de la Ternura”. Pero, ¿En qué consiste esta Revolución de la Ternura? En este artículo se presentan algunos recursos que pueden permitirnos acercarnos a esta propuesta del Papa Francisco desde sus propias palabras. Los compartimos con la intención que pueda ser una fuente para reflexionar y responder, de forma individual y en comunidad, a esta propuesta del Papa Francisco.
