Vatican


By Joshua J. McElwee 
 
For decades, many liberation theologians globally have lived with a looming possibility: One day, a letter could arrive from the Vatican contesting their work, even calling it heretical or anti-Christian.

Gustavo Gutierrez welcomed by Vatican!

This article by the New York Times about the warm reception Gustavo Gutierrez received today at the Vatican vindicates Orbis books' seminal work, "A Theology of Liberation", as well as those stalwart Maryknollers who stood by Orbis over the years!

Nunc dimmittis!

Wake for Fr. Jim Madden, M.M.

More than 100 mourners (family, friends, Maryknoll Affiliates and Maryknollers) gathered this evening for the wake celebrating the life and
service of Fr. Jim Madden.

Testimonies came from relatives and colleagues and one from a Peruvian who had worked with Jim in the Alti Plano.

The beautiful spray of roses pictured are from the Maryknoll Affiliates. The other two sprays are from Jim's nieces and nephews.

Maryknoll Christmas Concert 2013


On Friday 13th, the Maryknoll choir composed of Fathers, Brothers, Sisters, Lay Missioners, Employees and a few volunteers from off-campus, gave a rousing 1 hour and 15 minute musical tour de force to celebrate the Advent Christmas season.

Under the capable baton of Mr. Christopher Reilly, Maryknoll music director, and accompanied by Mr. Joe Nigro on the organ, the choir regaled the packed house of 325 attendees with works by Mozart and Händel and jazzed up versions of traditional carols like "O Come All Ye Faithful."

Sr. Ann Hayden's crystal clear soprano voice soloed on several melodies, including the Magnificat and Fr. Ed Szendrey's tenor/baritone voice was perfect for "Gesù Bambino" --in Italian!

The choir had been practicing weekly since October and in recent weeks added two or three rehearsals each week. Their efforts seem to have paid off as even  those who did not attend (or watch on the in-house Channel 15) had heard by word of mouth how moving the evening was.

Then yesterday, (Tuesday Dec. 17) the choir got to put their efforts to good use again for a mini-concert on the second floor over at the Maryknoll Sisters.

That plus the mini snow storm that blanketed us for the third time so far this season did indeed give a feeling of Christmas.

Panorama of Despidida

Years of service

All ears

Cast of hundreds

End of an era

After 65 years (as long as I've been alive!) of faithful service to Maryknoll, 47 of which were with the Council Secretariat, Nina Planimenta has retired.

She attended the community Mass this morning with Society members on the Lady Chapel, and after lunch in our dining room with Fr. Dougherty and council members, she was given a Despidida of grand proportions in the Asia/Africa room.

Hundreds of employees and society members, in addition to Nina's immediate family, attended and enjoyed tasty treats, many of which were homemade by our loyal staff.

Speakers (in random order) included Fr. Ed Dougherty, superior general; Fr. John Sivalon, former SG; Fr. Art Dwyer, who served on the very first council with Nina back in the day; Maryknoll Sisters President Janice McLaughlin; Sr. Sue Moore; Ms. Denise Schneider, assistant to the US regional superior; Ms. Adrianne Glass, head of HR; Ms. Marge Gaughan, managing editor of MARYKNOLL magazine and moi, on behalf of the rank and file members for whom Nina has been a comforting presence all these years.

R.I.P. Mrs. Joan Farrelly

It is with profound shock and sadness that Maryknoll announces the unexpected death of Mrs. Joan Farrelly who passed away earlier today.

Joan worked most recently as Supervisor Bank Deposit/Business Office in the Finance-Cashiers Department. Many Maryknollers came to know Joan in the Business Office in our main building.

About seventy-five Maryknollers and employees attended a prayer service this afternoon in Mary, Queen of Apostles chapel. Fr. Dave Smith presided, Fr. Mike Duggan lead the singing and Fr. Joe LaMar was lector.
