"Life grows by being given away, and it weakens in isolation and comfort. Indeed, those who enjoy life most are those who leave security on the shore and become excited by the mission of communicating life to others". Pope Francis, Joy of the Gospel

The most frequent comments we hear from people who have been on a mission immersion trip are that it was "live changing" and "transformative." More than ever, we need to reach out across borders and immerse ourselves in global solidarity.

Join us on an adventure of a lifetime to Bolivia, El Salvador, Guatemala, Jamaica, El Paso/Juarez and San Francisco. Experience the true Joy of the Gospel that comes from an inter-cultural encounter with our brothers and sisters around the world.
