Montego Bay, Jamaica 


Deacon Michael Berstene 
Maryknoll Fathers and Brothers 

Register now for the 2017 Jamaica Immersion in Montego Bay.

Come with us to Jamaica in June for a mission immersion experience that you will not forget!  Learn about the Jamaican people, the church in Jamaica and explore how we are linked to the Jamaican people in the bonds of global solidarity.  Although the number of Catholics in Montego Bay is small, their evangelization efforts are making a huge impact. Join their E-Team (Evangelization Team) for an exciting week of mission experiences. 

Leaving the comfort of home to meet our brothers and sisters in another land is a real and concrete way we encounter Christ in each other.  Come see what new dimensions of faith, hope and love Jesus wants to share with and through you!
