Maryknoll Affiliate Conference

November 9-12, 2017
Guatemala, Central America


Registration is now available. For the forms, go to

After the conference, consider a Mission Visit…

You can visit missions of Maryknoll Sisters, a Priest, Lay Missioners, and Affiliates who serve in different areas of Guatemala or in El Salvador. Visiting a mission, you will be salt and light in exchanging the joy of the Gospel, living the beatitudes, and letting yourself be evangelized more than wanting to evangelize others.
