Why a pineapple? Christopher Columbus tasted the pineapple in the Caribbean and embraced the fruit. He returned to Europe, where the pineapples, being rare, became a symbol of great wealth, and royalty honored distinguished guests by gifting them with the extremely fashionable pineapples.

Maryknoll Affiliates have put their homes on the Maryknollers Hospitality List. The list catalogs Affiliate households that are available to offer hospitality for Maryknollers and Affiliates who are visiting a geographic area. To date, 28 Affiliate households have been listed.

The geographic areas covered are:

  • Phoenix, AZ 
  • Arroyo Grande, CA 
  • Long Beach, CA 
  • Petaluma, CA   
  • Denver, CO 
  • Littleton, CO 
  • Salem, CT 
  • Jacksonville, Fl 
  • Orange Park, FL 
  • Weeki Wachee, FL
  • New Orleans, LA

When Maryknollers request hospitality in a given area, they will contact Bob Short. Bob will assess the details of the request and then have the Affiliate member who is offering the hospitality contact the interested Maryknoller. In addition to the practical benefits of this hospitality, it provides an opportunity to get to know other members of the Maryknoll family.

Offers of hospitality continue to be accepted. To add your home to the list, please email Bob Short (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.).
