Maryknoll Sisters Staff Are Partners in Mission.
Our Vision and Mission are the basis for all the efforts of Mission Services. The Congregation and the Corporation exist for the same purpose and Mission Services provides all the support necessary at the Sisters Center to facilitate that mission. This vision is ever expanding as our consciousness is stretched by our experiences. It embraces cross-cultural service to the poor and marginalized, an integrated relationship with all of creation, and ever-deepening rootedness in God’s love. We are committed to integrated, ecological approaches to human development.
We value working in collaboration with others in pursuit of healing the earth community and achieving the great work of God: new heavens and a new earth, abundant life for all. Every job done here at our Mission Center is directed toward this effort. Every staff member, whether Sister or lay, whether full time, part-time or volunteer, serves this mission.
Within Mission Services, a missionary spirit of loving service is transmitted from one person to another and is sustained in a shared vision that our services are an integral part of the mission effort. As we gather to work with shared energy, we promote and hold ourselves accountable to these core values:
- Communication and Dialogue
- Cooperation, Partnership, Teamwork and Collaboration
- Mutual Accountability
- Justice, Peace, Solidarity and the Integrity of Creation
These values form and sustain our service to mission. We recognize God’s call to act justly and fairly in all our dealings with one another as an organization and as coworkers. We realize that partnership and justice can flourish only in an atmosphere of mutual responsibility that ensures open channels for the consistent, clear, and free flow of information.
