We will be going to Mexicali early Saturday morning on December 14 from the Newman Center in mini-vans! The road trip will take approximately 6 hours and you MUST have a passport. While we are there, the men and women will be living in separate houses. It is expected that you bring a pillow and sleeping bag, as bedding nor beds will be provided. The community we are staying at will provide meals.
For this trip, our day will consist of praying, formation, and apostolate time. Our group will be working with the three communities of the Parish “La Santa Cruz” in the “Ejido Querétaro”. In these communities, we will spend a most of our time evangelizing alongside local college students from a university in Mexicali. The mission will entail visiting houses in a rural area which are organized by faith communities, and bringing the Catholic faith to them. We will be working with kids, teens, and adults during this process. There is also the possibility of doing some renovation work for the communities’ catechism spaces. In addition, we will be celebrating the traditional Mexican “Posadas” and a Christmas festival with the people from Mexicali!
We would love for you to join us on this mission!
