In August 2001, ten lay people attended a gathering at the Seoul Sisters’ house and formed the basis of an “unofficial Affiliate Chapter” that has continued to meet monthly for almost 14 years. Five out of the original ten were in the group that met this weekend for the Covenant signing.
In 2014, approval came from the Affiliate Board to form an official Affiliate Chapter. February 8, 2015 was chosen as the date to sign the Affiliate Covenant. All members of the Chapter were present for the retreat, Eucharist and Signing Ceremony.
The retreat started with personal sharing in groups of two wherein each person shared about a significant mission experience. Sharing then continued in groups of six and finally in the total group. From that sharing, insights were gathered as a first step in writing a Mission Vision.
Each member was given a card of Our Lady of Maryknoll with the Affiliate promise and a place for his/her signature printed on the back.
THE AFFILIATE COMMUNITY THROUGHOUT THE WORLD THANKS YOU FOR YOUR MANY YEARS OF COMMITTED MISSION SERVICE AND CONGRATULATS YOU FOR THIS BEAUTIFUL COVENANT CEREMONY.
