Maryknoll, New York
A Mission HistoryDownloadable Video - 2000
This film traces the Maryknoll history from its 1911 foundation as the Catholic Foreign Mission Society of America to current activities throughout the world. Since the first mission to China in 1918, the religious organization has sent priests, brothers, sisters, and lay people abroad for evangelism, community service, and humanitarian work. Civil war, revolution, and social unrest have proven challenging for missioners in the field. Some have paid the ultimate price for their faith by losing their lives. Today, there are approximately 1,500 missioners working in 37 nations.
