Mexico Service Project 2023
Spend 8 days in Montefalco, a conference center in rural Morelos, south of Mexico City. The days will be spent improving facilities in El Peñon School and doing other volunteer and humanitarian work. Participants will spend time in sports and other social activities, and they will have the chance to go on cultural and sightseeing trips and hiking expeditions. The trip will also include a visit to the shrine of Our lady of Guadalupe.
For High School Boys
June 18 – 26, 2023
The Mexico Service Project offers high school men the opportunity to live solidarity. Through a maintenance and construction project that is both demanding and rewarding, volunteers will discover the great joy of sacrificing themselves for others. They will also benefit from the unique opportunity to interact with local Mexican students, learning about their culture and way of life. Participants will also have the opportunity to take advantage of spiritual activities such as confession, daily Mass, and regular times for prayer.
There is work and a lot of fun
