Something to keep in mind...
Maryknoll priest Joe Healey MM from Nairobi emailed the following:
Just wanted to keep you folks in the loop. We want the Ignatian Family Teach-In for Justice (IFTJ) that will take place at the Crystal City Gateway Marriott near Washington, DC from 16-18 November, 2019 to be a good example of the networking and collaboration of the whole Maryknoll family.
One suggestion is that the various Maryknoll entities, departments and offices (with others) team up during the Ignatian Family Teach-In for Justice (IFTJ) that will take place at the Crystal City Gateway Marriott near Washington, DC from 16-18 November, 2019. One of the main topics is “Environment.” The audience is Jesuit high school and college students.
Many plans are already underway. Orbis Books will have a table. The Maryknoll Lay Missioners will have a table. From my conversation with Chloe we are suggesting that the Maryknoll Office for Global Concerns (MOGC) take the lead and apply for a Breakout Session (50 minutes) on Sunday, 17 November on a topic similar to “Climate Justice: Beyond the Plastic Water Bottle.” If you agree many of us can help: myself, members of the Nova Community, young people in the Washington DC area.
