Chapter Spotlight: HOUSTON

  • Chapter Spotlight Houston

    Robert Guice, contact person for the Houston Affiliates, describes their Chapter as "actively pursuing and supporting short term mission." Above is a great photo of the active members of the group from 2006. Several have since left to become MK Lay Missioners in Africa and Thailand. Another left to build a church in rural Africa. Two got married and moved, and one, Is Moritis has since passed away.

    The next two photos, taken in the fall of 2014, show Chapter members involved in building/remodeling houses in Eagle Pass, TX on the border of Mexico. In the photo above, Chapter members take a break after a re-roofing for the homeowner. Although they have busy lives, Chapter members enjoy coming to Affiliate gatherings to share community and conviction with like-minded folks who are pursuing peace and justice.

    Above, more Chapter members get involved in building another house. This very active Chapter has also supported the Casa Juan Diego Houston Catholic Worker (CJD) House by working in the garden or even stepping in to live at CJD while the Director was in the hospital and recovering from an operation.

  • Remembering Jim - Chicago Central
    Written by
    The Chicago Central Affiliate Chapter recently gathered and focused their meeting on a remembrance of Jim Madden.  They ended with an adapted prayer that I found to be especially meaningful and moving.  I think you will too.  (Bob Short) Celine Woznica, contact person for that Chapter introduced it this way:  “As part of the service, we listened to Jim's own words by taking his Visioning with Maryknoll Movement document, editing it down a bit, and dividing it into 11 sections.  We took turns reading and paused a bit after each section. We found a station on Pandora that played Aymaran music, and brought some artesenia from the Andes (well, Bolivia, but it worked).”   “The final prayer is an adaptation of an Irish funeral prayer which reflected Jim's Irish heritage and ended it with a little Latin American flavor!  Thanks for sharing the service with the other Affiliates in case they would like to do something similar.  We all remember Jim with such love and gratitude.”
