The letter that follows was written by Karen Bortvedt, Recruitment Manager for MKLM. It's a wonderful invitation for all expressions within the Maryknoll Family. Karen mentioned in a subsequent email that his includes events at the chapter level. See Karen's contact information below.
Greeting my Maryknoll Collaborators,
I hope you are all doing well. As a part of my job, I attempt to keep up the discernment section of our MKLM website. My hope, going forward, is to include a section with “Other Maryknoll Opportunities” as our discerners are around the country and we would love them to connect with your programing and opportunities around the country. Since we are all a part of the Maryknoll family, involvement with your events will help them to understand who we are and serve as a kind of formation (before we even get an application).
This is my ask, if you have events, training programs, retreats, speaker series, advocacy opportunities, or anything else you think could use some promotion that has a specific date, please send me a link (or PDF of the information) and a one to three sentence summary that I can just copy and paste to a website. Please also feel free to share this with others on your team/staff so they can send along opportunities as well.
I will do my best to get events sent to me posted weekly, though have mercy if that doesn’t always happen. As soon as I have the page live, I can send you the link as well if you would want to reshare it in anyway.

THANK YOU KAREN
