“Friends On The Journey,” with stories that reflect Maryknoll’s work with, among others, the poor and marginalized around the world, is the theme for the January-February issues of Maryknoll magazine and the Spanish-language Revista Maryknoll. Both magazines also feature the work of the Maryknoll Mission Center in Cochabamba, Bolivia.
The Maryknoll Society has developed and grown the Maryknoll Mission Center and the Maryknoll Language Institute in Bolivia for the past 40 years. The center brings mission and leadership formation programs to Latin Americans and it provides language training and mission immersion programs to people from around the world. The Cochabamba area is known for standard Spanish with clear pronunciation, and the Maryknoll Language Institute assists people with linguistic and cultural preparation for intercultural service.
Since 1965, more than 10,000 people, religious and laity preparing for mission, have studied Spanish and the Andean languages of Aymara and Quechua at Maryknoll. Graduates work in all parts of Latin American and in the U.S., Europe and Asia.
