Serve America Act

Your Action Needed!

The Maryknoll Lay Missioners have the opportunity to obtain a dollar-for-dollar match for funds spent on living costs and travel of their missioners! But, they need you to act.

The Serve America Act has express provisions that provide direct stipends to U.S.A. citizens to "offset the travel and living costs of volunteering abroad." But, the Act has not yet passed the U.S. Senate. Last week the U.S. House of Representatives passed the GIVE Act.

Now, additional action must be taken in order for the Serve America Act to pass when it is voted on in the Senate before the Congressional Recess on April 6.

You can voice your support:

Call or e-mail your Senator. (Click on Read More for a sample letter that you can copy and paste into an email to your senator.) Find out who your senator is and how to contact her by visiting: www.senate.gov/general/contact_information/senators_cfm.cfm When you locate your senator from that website, it is recommended that you use the link titled: “Web Form.”

The Maryknoll Lay Missioners face an unprecedented challenge for future funding. This Serve America Act would provide non-profit organizations such as the Maryknoll Lay Missioners with a dollar for dollar match for funds spent on living costs and travel of their overseas workers.

For more information, visit: www.thomas.gov.

Don’t forget to also encourage every U.S. citizen you know to join the effort to pass the Serve America Act.

Sam Stanton, Executive Director of the Maryknoll Lay Missioner and member of the Maryknoll Affiliate Board, thought it would be good if we post this. Sam pointed out that both Maryknoll Father Paul Masson and he serve on the board of the USCMA and the Maryknoll Affiliates.

On March 7, 2009, the USCMA Board members gathered for their spring meeting in WashingtonDC. On top of their agenda is the election of its new set of Executive Committee members. After some serious thought and deliberation, the Board overwhelmingly elected Mrs. Teresita Gonzalez de la Maza as its new Board President. She is the first married laywoman and Hispanic to be elected Board President since the founding of USCMA. The USCMA past Presidents include the Most Rev. William G. Connare, Most Rev. Glennon Flavin, His Eminence Timothy Cardinal Manning, Sr. Mary Ann Dillon, RSM, Sr. Mary Louise Lynch, MMS, Rev. John Fischer. Mr. Donald Mueller, Rev.

Tom McCormickFr. Tom McCormick is a retired priest of the Archdiocese of Denver.  In addition to parish assignments, he has been involved with a variety of other ministries.  As director of Catholic Community Services-Northern, he set up social services in Ft. Collins, Loveland and Greeley Colorado.  His assignments also include the experience of Campus Ministry at Colorado State University, pastor of John XXIII University Parish. 

His mission experience was in Colombia and Mexico.  The Archdiocese of Denver established a Mission in the diocese of Monteria-Colombia in 1979.  This mission continued with rotation of other diocesan priests and a lay mission team for 15 years.  Fr. McCormick was the priest-leader for the first five years of this foundation.  He also started the new mission in the diocese of Hermosillo (Sonora) Mexico.  Since returning to USA, a big emphasis of his ministry has been with the Latino populations in Colorado.

His attraction to work with Maryknoll comes from the desire to share the mission experiences and promote the work of the Maryknoll missioners, for whom he holds a great admiration. 

Being Prophetic Voices in MissionThe Father Price Maryknoll Affiliate Chapter hosted the North Carolina Maryknoll Affiliate Gathering, "Being Prophetic Voices in Mission." The gathering took place May 1 and 2, 2009, in Wilmington and Topsail Beach, North Carolina.
