Maryknoll Mission Work In Africa and Latin America To Be Highlighted in November on CatholicTV
During the month of November, CatholicTV will air programming which highlights the work of the Maryknoll missionaries in Africa and Latin America on the show “The Field Afar”.
The Maryknoll missionaries consist of priests, brothers, sisters, and lay persons who primarily serve in East Asia, China, Japan, Korea, Latin America and Africa.
During the month of November, “The Field Afar” focuses on Maryknoll’s work in Guatemala, Kenya, and Brazil.
In Latin America, Maryknoll has helped build the infrastructures of parishes, schools, clinics, and social programs, and increasingly assists in the formation of laity.
In Africa, Maryknoll Fathers and Brothers work with the hundreds of thousands uprooted by war and famine, those struggling with AIDS and orphaned by AIDS, and the many who labor to compete in a global economy.
Each week in November, “The Field Afar” will air during the following times: Monday at noon; Wednesday at 5 a.m.; Friday at 8 a.m; Sunday at 10:30 p.m. (all times Eastern)
