Renewing the Joy of Mission—Shifting Into the Future
Four chapters are collaborating on this summer event, with 36 participants from eight of our eleven Midwest Affiliate Chapters already registered. We also welcome anyone interested in learning about the Affiliates.
We will reflect and dialog on our four pillars, priorities, key values, changes, challenges, hopes and concerns. Emmaus walks and sharing of our local and global activities will help us find renewed hope and joy in living our dreams. We plan to get to know our Maryknoll Affiliates in the Midwest and take time to reflect on where we ourselves, and we together, will go from here.
Love in Action – Mission on the Margins
The Seattle Chapter was formed about 20 years ago. Within the past two years, some Affiliate members of the Seattle Chapter have done short-term overseas experiences in Mexico, Thailand, Tanzania, and El Salvador. Because Affiliates are becoming such active and vital links in the Maryknoll movement, the Seattle Affiliate Chapter is sponsoring a Western Regional Conference to discuss the importance of Mission and the role of lay people in Mission.
