El Salvador 



Deacon Michael Berstene 
Maryknoll Fathers and Brothers 


Register now for the 2017 El Salvador Immersion

Join us in September for a mission immersion trip to learn more about the people and church in El Salvador.  Explore how we are linked to the people of Central America in the bonds of global solidarity.

Pray at the sites of the martyrs of El Salvador, including Blessed Oscar Romero.

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! 

See how immersion trips can impact us by following this link to our missionary blog.

PLEASE NOTE:  Couples traveling together must each apply separately as we need complete contact information for each participant.
