Sister Rosemarie Milazzo joined the Maryknoll Community to be a religious globetrotter, imagining herself serving the poor in Africa or perhaps Peru or Japan, like other Maryknoll missionaries she knew. So she was a little surprised when she was handed her first assignment, and realized she’d be teaching in China… town. Chinatown, New York, to be exact. Sister Rosemarie did eventually travel to Tanzania, Kenya, Iraq, and a host of other countries.

"There's a stark difference between what I experience there and what I see here. It's like a mark on your heart. It doesn't leave."
