Co-editor Paula here, filling in for co-editor Mary as she and her husband Manny are on the road.  I like to refer to them as the Affiliate ambassadors-at-large.

This issue is filled with Action and Community. Chapters from South Korea to Petaluma to Houston have reflected on their Affiliate lives. Mary and Manny report on chapters they visited as they crossed the US to attend the Maryknoll Affiliates’ April board meeting at the Maryknoll Sisters’ in Ossining, NY. That included participating in the Northeast Region’s conference on Balance (see page 1). To round out this issue, we have invitations to attend the Maryknoll Sisters’ Mission Institute, to take an online class, to get involved in Quo Vadis, or to read a good book. 

On Mary and Manny’s return trek, they have visited several more chapters, which we’ll hear about in the next issue. As they travel, they are organizing a Northwest Regional mini-conference on active nonviolence for September 22 in Portland. (See this page!) Mary says, “Y’all come!”

In our next issue, we will also recognize Affiliates who passed away in the last year or so. Please share the names of any Affiliates you know of who are no longer with us. And, as always, we want to hear what your chapter is up to. Drop us an email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
