Join Maryknoll missioners on a 5-day experience to contemplate the journey as “missionary disciples” launched by Pope Francis in “The Joy of the Gospel” ten years ago.
What: Maryknoll Missionary Disciples on the Margins: Celebrating Ten Years of Joy of the Gospel, Envisioning New Frontiers for Going Forward
Where: Maryknoll Mission Center, 23000 Cristo Rey Drive, Los Altos, CA 94024. Located in the hills of Los Altos, California, across the street from the Rancho San Antonio Open Space Preserve. All rooms are singles with private bathrooms.
When: August 21–25, 2023, starting on Monday, Aug. 21, at 8:30 a.m. PT (arrive on Sunday Aug. 20 for those traveling.) Last session will conclude after lunch on Friday, Aug. 25.
We will reflect on the deep questions of our time: What is mission today? How do we respond to the epic changes in our world? How do we as a church journey together?
If you are looking for a space to rest from the weariness of the journey, a space to contemplate the difficult questions and a community with whom to envision the “new creation,” this workshop is for you! We will make special visits to the Redwood Forest and the Pacific Ocean. We invite you to join us on this journey as missionary disciples!
