From Brooklyn to Peru, a legacy with Maryknoll, Fr. Raymond Finch, M.M.

 

 

Today we sit down with one of the most recognizable and respected Maryknoll missioners, Maryknoll Superior General Fr. Raymond Finch.

For those of you who are fans of Maryknoll, you know Fr. Finch from the weekly Journey of Faith reflection he sends you every Sunday.

Originally from Brooklyn, N.Y., Fr. Finch was inspired by one of Maryknoll’s first priests and fellow Brooklynites, Bishop Francis Xavier Ford, who was martyred in China in 1952.  Fr. Finch was one of the first students to attend the school in Brooklyn named in honor of the martyr, Bishop Ford High School.

Journey with us to the highlands of Peru, where Fr. Finch worked with the indigenous Aymara community for over 20 years.

Fr. Finch reminds us that in mission we have to meet people where they are, not where we want or expect them to be.
