Accompaniment and Intentional Communities

Rostro de Cristro | Guayaquil, Ecuador
Saturday, December 10th- Sunday, December 18th, 2022
Cost: $1,850

 

 

Experience living in an intentional intercultural community that supports each other’s spiritual and personal growth with love, acceptance, and understanding. While in Ecuador, Santa Clara students will be hosted by Rostro de Cristo. Rostro de Cristo partners with local efforts that respond to the basic needs to understand the causes of the injustices in which they live and recognize the dignity of every person and the diversity of the human family.

 

SCU students are invited to enter this community with humility and will spend most of their time developing relationships with local families through daily visits and helping out with the community after school programs for grade school children. The group will learn primarily about education and healthcare needs in the community with the aim of prioritizing authentic relationships and act to end unjust distribution of wealth and opportunity.

 

International Travel: This immersion includes traveling abroad, you will need a valid passport and proof of vaccination to participate. Passports should have at least six months of validity when traveling internationally.

Ecuador Immersion

It seems cliche to say that one week in another country changed me for the better, but it did. Being able to stand in another's shoes made me feel joy, sorrow, compassion, and love, in ways that I never had before. - Joshua Raymundo
