Letter to his Holiness Kirill

Statement made by the NGO’s at the United Nations


The Maryknoll Office of Global Concerns (MOGC) represents the Maryknoll Sisters, Maryknoll Fathers & Brothers, and Maryknoll Lay Missioners, and we work closely with the Maryknoll Affiliates.

MOGC Brings Maryknoll experience

  • To important debates about public policy in the United Nations, the U.S. and other governments, the World Bank and International Monetary Fund, and the corporate world
  • To educate for social justice, peace and the integrity of creation
  • To inform advocacy and action for social, economic and environmental justice

MOGC facilitates the understanding and involvement of Maryknoll missioners by clarifying the links between their experience on the ground, and systems or structures that create or perpetuate poverty, human rights violations, conflict, and environmental destruction.

We are staffed jointly by missioners from each Maryknoll entity, salaried personnel, and Affiliate volunteers.

We are located in Washington, D.C., at Maryknoll, N.Y., and in New York City, across from the UN.
