We’re going to Oaxaca, Mexico December 9-16, 2023
Are you looking for a way to help others… gain a sense of community and expand your spirituality? …Consider a Build Trip!
St. Francis Builds (SFB) was developed 16 years ago by Fr. Mike Johnson while working in Maryland at St. Camillus parish. SFB has worked with underserved communities in the United States and in other countries. During the past year, groups have travelled to Puerto Rico, Tijuana, Mexico and New Orleans.
St Francis Builds with Fr Mike is headed to Oaxaca, Mexico this Advent from Dec. 9-16th. We will be building with Friends of Pimpollo – a wonderful organization we built with in August, that builds schools in poor communities. Further information about the organization is found here: www.friendsofpimpollo.org.
While skilled labor experience is fabulous…it’s certainly not essential. Enthusiasm, interest and a commitment to learning and helping others are some of the most important skills needed for this trip!
