To Maryknoll Affiliates, as part of the Maryknoll Movement, mission is our central focus. We are all called to reach out to the other, whether to the poor and marginalized in a distant country or to those next to us. Through short-term service and immersion experiences, Maryknoll Affiliates find opportunities to respond to this call.
Mission service/immersion experiences are educational. After they return, Affiliates can share what they learned during their service/immersion with their Chapter and, when possible, with the local community, parish, schools, or with other interested groups. Maryknoll's story can be enriched and brought home with the Affiliate.
