New Mexico mission is an exciting 12-day journey that will help you grow closer to Christ through service to the poor and your fellow missionaries. The mission begins with a flight to New Mexico. The main focus is to be Christ's hands and feet to the poorest of the poor. We work alongside the Little Sisters of the Poor, Daughters of Charity, Missionaries of Charity, Benedictine Monks, and the staff of the Diocese of Gallup. You will be assisting the needs of these individual organizations whether it be physical labor or simply spending time with someone. Christ dwells within these simple acts of service. Before and after each day of work you will also spend time with your fellow missionaries in prayer to grow closer to Christ.
As St. John Paul II states, “Be generous in answering Jesus’ call inviting you to put out into the deep and become His witnesses, discovering the trust He puts in you to devise a future together with Him. Above all, to fulfill this mission the Church is entrusting to you requires that you cultivate a genuine life of prayer nourished by the Sacraments, especially the Eucharist and Confession.”
We hope and pray New Mexico mission is calling you!
