Justice Immersion Ecuador
The Archdiocese of Detroit Encounter Ecuador Experience is for young people who are willing to have their lives touched and forever changed. This experience is more than a trip, it is a journey of conversion that will lead young people to a closer relationship with God and the entire human family.
Youth will spend time in the South American nation of Ecuador where you will have the opportunity to meet with Ecuadorians, hear their stories, and accompany them for a short time in their daily lives. The program allows young Detroit Catholics to participate in a first-hand immersion experience or to donate money to purchase a llama for an Ecuardorian family, impacting them directly.
It is only through your generous support that these teens can put their faith into action. The yearlong preparation and the Ecuador experience challenges the youth to find ways to live out their faith back home in Metro Detroit.
With your help, we can allow more of our youth to participate in this life-changing experience:
- Pledge $1,850 to underwrite an Ecuador Immersion Experience for one (inner city) teen.
- Pledge $840 to underwrite 50% of an Ecuador Immersion Experience for one (inner city) teen.
- Sponsor a Minga (work project) with a donation of $5,000.00 – $8,000.00 (or a portion of the cost)
A donation in any amount is greatly appreciated.
