MARYKNOLL, New York,
The new logo, an image depicting a tablet, identifies the centennial theme - The Gift of Mission - The Maryknoll Journey - along with the years 1911 and 2011. It includes the Greek letters "chi" and "rho" that are the first two letters for the Greek spelling of the word "Christ." The design features a path or river that travels to the horizon, illustrating this unique opportunity to reflect on the mission work during the Maryknoll Society's first century while looking toward the future and the new mission projects that will be required during the next 100 years.
Maryknoll Fathers and Brothers is the overseas mission outreach of the Roman Catholic Church in the United States that serves the poor and others in need in 27 countries. The centennial theme, along with the many events that will occur worldwide during 2011, will celebrate the many accomplishments by Maryknoll Fathers and Brothers in foreign countries, will spotlight current mission programs and will contemplate future needs for missionary ministry around the world. The Maryknoll Society shares God's love by combating poverty, providing healthcare, building communities and promoting human rights.
The new logo will be used in conjunction with the traditional Maryknoll Fathers and Brothers branding logo. Both logos will appear on all communications materials and media, including Maryknoll magazine, the Spanish-language Revista Maryknoll, the Society website and other communications initiatives with donors and other key audiences of the Maryknoll Society.
