While traveling in Puerto Rico, we will have many opportunities to learn from sisters and brothers who seek to follow Jesus faithfully in the midst of challenging circumstances. We will engage in intercultural, bilingual study of selected passages from the Gospel of Mark, gaining a deeper understanding of Mark’s call for solidarity in suffering.  We will hear from leaders who are working to make a positive difference in their neighbor’s lives. We will join them in simple acts of service, and we will gain skills that can help us bridge cultural differences with neighbors wherever we are.
