The Maryknoll Office for Global Concerns: Peace, Social Justice and Integrity of Creation, is a collaborative ministry of the Maryknoll Sisters, the Maryknoll Fathers and Brothers and the Maryknoll Lay Missioners. Through theological reflection on and systemic analysis of the reality lived and observed by Maryknoll missioners around the world, the office facilitates among Maryknollers, as Catholics and agents of Christ’s Gospel, a personal and corporate commitment to peace, social justice and the integrity of creation.
The mission of the Maryknoll Office for Global Concerns is carried out through education and advocacy in cooperation with other Maryknoll departments and entities. The office also collaborates regularly with other institutions and organizations working for peace, social justice and the integrity of creation. It brings the voice and experience of Maryknoll into policy discussions in the United Nations, the U.S. and other governments, international financial institutions and the corporate world.
The Maryknoll Office for Global Concerns serves as a resource for Maryknoll leadership and Maryknoll missioners to enable them to act when appropriate on behalf of peace, social justice and the integrity of creation.
