Maryknoll Lay Missioners - August 2021 mklm news
Chocolate and piñatas
Easter Greetings!

During the pandemic in El Salvador, Maryknoll lay missioner Ann Greig asked the women at her soy project what they needed most. The women, most of whom have been earning their livelihoods in the informal market, were having great difficulties eking out a living. They told here they needed to find new ways to make money to support and feed their families.

Ann responded by organizing a series of entrepreneurial workshops that provided skills training for chocolate and piñata making. As they are now finding out, there is always a market for more chocolate and piñatas!
'Seeing the world through God's eyes'
Within all four expressions of Maryknoll, we are currently retraining ourselves to “see differently.” As we are discerning what mission looks like in the 21st century, Ted Miles asks: What does God see and how does God want us to respond? 
Rest in peace, Fr. Jack
We mourn the death of Father Jack Sullivan, MM, cofounder and in the 1970s the first director of the Maryknoll Lay Missioner program. Through the decades, he remained an enthusiastic cheerleader and trusted friend and mentor to Maryknoll Lay Missioners. Thank you, Fr. Jack!

We invite you to share your memories of Fr. Jack with us.
