This is a photograph of the Maryknoll compound at Tungchen [now Dongzhen] China. The foreground shows flooded rice fields with paths or dykes.
Maryknoll, The Catholic Foreign Mission Society of America, was founded in 1911 by Revs. James Anthony Walsh and Thomas Frederick Price to be the main mission outreach of the Roman Catholic Church of the United States. The first group of missioners departed in 1918 for China. Today Maryknoll Priests, Brothers and Sisters are missioned in over 30 countries around the world.
