El Salvador Immersion 

For Deacons and Wives and other parish ministers

Maryknoll invites you to come to El Salvador to celebrate the first official Feast Day of Saint Oscar Romero. Walk in his footsteps, visit where he lived and worked. Celebrate Mass in the chapel where his ministry came to a tragic end, but where he became a saint and martyr for the faith. This is a life-changing mission immersion trip honoring the Catholic Church’s newest saint.  

Immersion includes:

  • Pre-trip orientation
  • On-site introduction to the cultural, economic and political realities of El Salvador
  • Walk in the footsteps of the martyrs of Central America, including Blessed Archbishop Romero, the U.S. Church women and Jesuits at UCA
  • Visit Maryknoll missionaries, hear their stories of working with the people of Caentral America and discover how their work in mission connects with yours
  • Pastoral visits to homes and hospitals
  • Meet the people of el Salvador and listen to stories of hope and challenge
  • Daily communal prayer, liturgies and theological reflection
  • Visits to historical and cultural sites
  • Post-trip debriefing and reflection
  • Credits for Continuing Education
