Yesterday, our community gathered to celebrate Founders Day. On February 14, 1920, the Maryknoll Sisters were officially recognized as a religious community, with Mother Mary Joseph (Mollie Rogers) as their founding superior. Mother Mary Joseph Rogers is seen as one of the Co-Founders of Maryknoll, along with Father James Anthony Walsh and Father Thomas Frederick Price.
Our Maryknoll Sisters give witness to God’s love and devote their lives to service. As nurses, doctors, teachers, theologians, social workers, environmentalists, and more, they serve the needs of the people – the poor, the ailing, and the marginalized – where they are missioned.
The vision that is now Maryknoll School began with a young priest and six Maryknoll Sisters more than 95 years ago.
