Mark the Date – Jubilee 2017
I hope this finds your summer going well!
We want to invite you and your Maryknoll Lay Missioner classmates next year to come together to celebrate a special anniversary of your sending to mission with Maryknoll Lay Missioners and a time to catch up with your classmates. You will have the opportunity to share with other classes that will celebrate. In 2017 we will celebrate 40 years of sending of the classes of 1977, 35 years of the class of 1982, 25 years of the classes of 1992 and 15 of the class of 2002. We hope you can join the celebration and reconnect with your class.
The jubilee is also a time to see how Maryknoll Lay Missioners has evolved as an independent organization, our current commitments and our projections for the future. You and your classmates are an important part of this sacred history and our future. We hope you will be there!
The first weekend of this month we celebrated the 2016 jubilarians. It was a fantastic coming together of 32 Returned Missioners and 10 children. The sharing, the celebrations and the prayer times were profound and fun. The weekend was well evaluated. I am attaching the report on the 2016 Jubilee and pictures posted on our Monday Bulletin (weekly news update) from this past Monday.
During the weekend there is a time to share with one another and hear each other’s stories, reconnect with friends at the Society and Congregation and learn more about Maryknoll Lay Missioners, YOUR organization today. Don’t miss this marvelous time!
We initiated these jubilee gatherings in 2006 and they have usually been held from Friday afternoon through Sunday afternoon the first weekend of August. If we continue hosting them on the first weekend of August, yours will be held from Friday August 4 thru Sunday, August 6, 2017. However, we would like to ask you if this weekend is good for you. Or would a weekend in September or October be better for you? Please send me an email as soon as possible, email@example.com, stating if you prefer a weekend between September 1 and October 15. Please get your preference back to me by September 1 so we can firm up the date. Thanks!
As I believe all of you are aware, I stepped down as Executive Director of Maryknoll Lay Missioners on July 1 of the current year. Matt Boyle, who has been the MKLM Director of Mission Advancement for the past two years, assumed the position on that date. I am now in promotions and in the process of assuming the responsibility as Always a Missioner Manager from Cecilia Espinoza. Thus, from now on you will be hearing from me concerning Returned Missioner / Always a Missioner activities. I look forward to building on what Cecilia has accomplished and working with you and hopefully visiting you in the coming years.
I look forward to hearing from you concerning your date preference and we can go from there.
In the spirit of Maryknoll Lay Missioners,
Sam Stanton, Always a Missioner Manager
Maryknoll Lay Missioners
