Ken Eppes – South Central Regional Coordinator

I got to thinking about talking points for the questions,

•  Why I should be a Maryknoll Affiliate?

•   Why I should form an Affiliate Chapter?”  

I asked my Chapter in North Texas (Dallas/Fort Worth area), and they came up with the following talking points. 

 Being a Maryknoll Affiliate:

  1. Gives you the opportunity to be part of Maryknoll, a worldwide American mission society. 
  2. Gives you the opportunity to be part of an international network of lay people who spread the Good News of God’s love in the way their unique circumstances permit. 
  3. Gives you the opportunity to be educated and spiritually formed in mission.
  4. Gives you the opportunity to rub elbows with veteran, lifelong missioners and draw on their wisdom.
  5. Gives you the opportunity to meet regularly with like-minded people.
  6. Gives you the opportunity to find support for your current involvements.
  7. Gives you the opportunity to help others to answer their baptismal call to mission.
  8. Gives you the opportunity to participate in a rich dialogue about mission.
  9. Gives you the opportunity to engage in a continuous mission formation process.
  10.  Gives you the opportunity to grow in solidarity with the poor people of the world.

Can you think of others?
