WHO IS MARYKNOLL? For 100 years, members of Maryknoll, an American Catholic organization, have been in many parts of the world, working side by side with those in greatest need. They publish an award-winning magazine, and offer a free classroom program to students in grades k-12. Anne writes the monthly study guides for grades k-6.
HOW THIS FREE PROGRAM WORKS: With each issue of Maryknoll Magazinethat comes out during the school year, a subscribing teacher receives a copy of the magazine, one per each student, along with a colorful poster, a story and activities based on an article in the magazine. Students learn about a wide variety of topics, from water issues in Bolivia and Tanzania to discerning God's call in different times and places, from barefoot soccer games in Namibia to life in an orphanage in Mexico
Over 4000 Catholic schools and parishes in the United States are using this program--which means more than 215,000 students are pouring over the beautiful photos and learning about life around the world through the lens of Catholic Social Teaching. Join them in using this FREE PROGRAM! Please contact Maryknoll to sign-up.
