“This is really very important to me: the need to become acquainted with reality by experience, to spend time walking on the periphery in order to really become acquainted with the reality and life experiences if people.” Pope Frances.
Join Rostro de Cristo in Guayaquil, Ecuador – January 21-28, 2017!
Inspired by the missionary vision of Pope Francis “to spend time walking on theperiphery”, Rostro de Cristo invites you to a unique opportunity to understand your faith, and the life of Jesus and the Gospels in a different way – from a Church on the periphery.
Participants will be guided and hosted by Rostro de Cristo’s In Country Director, Brian Goonan, who has over 40 years of experience living and working as a Catholic missionary in Latin America, and our energetic and committed volunteers.
Retreat participants will be invited to pray and reflect on words and actions of Pope Francis as you walk the dusty streets of Guayaquil, meet our neighbors and hear their inspiring stories, visit with our local ministry partners serving the local Church, and encounter Christ among the poor.
Come join us for a week of prayer, reflections and encounter with Christ: join us as we discern God’s call for us today!
