Guaymas Immersion Experience

Guaymas Immersion Experience

Start October 30, 2023
End November 2, 2023

WHEN: Monday, 10/30 – Thursday, 11/2 2023

WHERE: Casa Franciscana, Guaymas, Mexico

HOW: Fly Into Hermosillo Airport (HMO), Sonora, Mexico, arriving the afternoon of 10/31. You will be met there and driven to Casa Franciscana in Guaymas.  Ministries would cover the flights for their respective participants. Room and meals will be provided by Franciscan Ministries. Passports are required.

Franciscan Ministries immersion experience will be focused on the people we encounter in Guaymas, the spirituality of this place, communal meals, and time for personal prayer and contemplation. We will be staying at the Friars’ Guest house in Guaymas and will have an opportunity to work alongside the people in ministry in Casa Franciscana. Participants must be able to traverse uneven surfaces and enter & exit from tall vans.

Casa Franciscana helps the marginalized people of Guaymas through its free medical & dental clinic, Mesón de Jesus (dining room), food packages for the home-bound, migrant shelter support and a youth center, and more. Casa Franciscana’s services are open to all, but primarily serve four of the poorest Guaymas neighborhoods.
