Get Involved

Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “Faith is taking the first step even when you don't see the whole staircase.” Over 50 years have passed since he spoke those words, yet the truth of them remains. It is never fully clear what will follow when we act on our faith, but not to do so is to miss out on wonderful opportunities for others and ourselves. You might choose to join an Affiliate Chapter near you; or, consider starting one if none is close by. Local initiatives as well as immersion trips overseas are other opportunities. The information that follows can help you to take the first steps.

We are all called to mission, to reach out to the other - whether to the poor and marginalized in a distant country, or to the person next to us. Through their Chapters and immersion opportunities, Maryknoll Affiliates provide opportunities to respond to this call. It is one way to give back using the skills and gifts with which you have been blessed, and work for sustainable change in our world.
