Mission Empowered by Love
Come and join us for this weekend Mission Institute Program which will also be a Celebration Program to honor the 50 years since the founding of the Maryknoll Mission Institute!
The history of the Mission Institute is one of energy shared, of cutting edge theology, scripture, ecology, spirituality, missiology and cosmology; reaching thousands of participants from all the corners of the world. This weekend will be filled with excitement, celebration and sharing as we delve the depths of our call to Mission Empowered by Love.
