BORDER IMMERSION — Oct.  24 – 28, 2022, in El Paso, Texas

Join us for a one-week experience that delves into the life and culture on the US/Mexico Border.We will see first-hand the struggles of immigrants as we visit shelters, agencies and parish ministries that serve them in El Paso, Texas and Juarez, Mexico. A current passport is required.

This experience is sponsored by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Concordia, Kansas. In our commitment to Gospel living and nonviolence, we stand in solidarity with undocumented immigrants, especially those seeking asylum.

This week-long experience is provided by the Encuentro Project under the direction of Father Rafael Garcia, SJ.

This communal experience requires that participants are in general good health, able to climb stairs, and willing to share a room. We will participate in personal and group reflections and regular community evening prayer.

PARTICIPANT’S COST: $500/person. Also, participants will be responsible for purchasing their own food as we travel to and from El Paso. Ground transportation will be provided from Concordia to El Paso by the Sisters of St. Joseph (leaving 22-23 and returning 29-30).
