Guatemala Immersion Experience

July 11-19, 2023 


Maryknoll Fathers and Brothers cordially invite you to discover Christ in our Guatemalan sisters and brothers. Deepen your faith and enliven your ministry through encounters with their hopes, joys, and struggles. Meet and learn from the lay and religious missioners walking with them, and discern how you can invite your own community into a spirit of encounter with our sisters and brothers on the margins.
