Mission Trip to El Paso, TX & Juárez, Mexico • Summer, 2021
Come with Maryknoll in partnership with the Columban Fathers where in the spirit of Evangelii Gaudium we will explore how we are linked to the people of Mexico in bonds of global solidarity.
Deacons • Deacons’ Wives • Parish, School & Diocesan Ministers
This week long summer immersion trip to El Paso,TX will expose you to the current realities at the US/Mexican border as thousands continue to flee to the US to escape violence and poverty in their own countries. You will have the chance to hear first-hand from immigrants, those who work with them, while also getting input from the Border Patrol and an immigration court judge. It is an opportunity to learn, judge, and analyze for yourself in light of the Gospel what our responses might be.
The trip is particularly designed for teacher, catechists, and other parish ministers, but is open to all who are open to learning and then sharing from what they have learned.
