Purpose of this Journey
This immersion experience to the Philippines offers an opportunity to connect at a grassroots level with some of the global majority poor, oppressed and marginalised and to witness the work of the church as it takes up Christ’s mission to inaugurate the reign of God in our world.
Participants will have an experience that jolts.
Their experiences of the church and the deep faith of the people they connect with have the potential to deepen their own spirituality and faith in ways that will inspire them to ponder their own mission in the world.
