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. 

General session speakers: 

  • Bob Short, Executive Coordinator of Maryknoll Affiliates
  • Gloria Burton, CCS Director of Farmworker Initiative for Catholic Housing Services
  • Renate Schneider, Executive Director of Haitian Connection.

Breakout sessions: 

  • Fair Trade Coffee – Barb Luxenberg 
  • Skagit Valley Migrant Workers – José Ortiz
  • Micro Financing – Tom Mailhot
  • El Salvador – Joe Hastings
  • Earth Ministry – Jessie Dye
  • Human Trafficking – Anna Clarke
