Chapter Spotlight: Greater Los Angeles

  • Chapter Spotlight Los Angeles

    In 2015 the Greater Los Angeles Maryknoll Affiliate Chapter held a Retreat co-sponsored by the Maryknoll Guild in Monrovia, California. Several Maryknoll Sisters joined in. The theme was Living a Life of Peace Through Non-violence and Fr. Chris Ponnet was their retreat leader. All photos here are taken from the Los Angeles Chapter Facebook page

    The Los Angeles Chapter is one of the larger Affiliate Chapters in the number of its members. It is also one that is particularly invested in the Global Vision and Action Affiliate pillars. For several years during the Christmas season Chapter members did midnight walk on Skid Row as well as prepare Christmas boxes of food for the families there.

    Above, several members of the Chapter - who somehow convinced that distinguished man in white to join them - participated in the 2014 Religious Education Congress held at the Anaheim Convention Center just outside Los Angeles.

Where we are

The Maryknoll Affiliate Chapter, sometimes referred to as a small mission community, is the organizing center of the Affiliate movement and is the primary support for individual Maryknoll Affiliates. There are over 50 Affiliate Chapters throughout the world varying in number from just 5 members to well over 40. On average, a Chapter meets 10 times a year. Each meeting includes reflection, discussion of a mission related theme (often following a presentation or video) and sharing a meal together. Many Chapters also commit themselves to a particular local or global action – such as working with the homeless, supporting Maryknoll’s education programs, peace and justice involvements, immersion trips overseas. While all Chapters are guided by the Affiliate Pillars of community, spirituality, global vision and action, each has its own identity and character.

The map on this page provides a glimpse of the geographic locations and the Chapter Spotlight highlights a particular Chapter for a given time period.
