Summer on Mission in Africa



One of the best aspects of the Maryknoll Formation program is the ability to visit Maryknoll missions throughout the world during one’s years of academic study. This past summer I was given the opportunity to visit the Maryknoll missions in East Africa, working with and visiting the missioners that are working throughout the region. Having never visited the African continent, I naturally had very little idea of what to expect; the languages, the culture, and the environment that the African region presents seemed very, very foreign to me.
