Justice Immersion Ecuador

Listening to God through the people we meet

Registration Packet

The Justice Immersion experience is for people who are willing to have their lives touched and forever changed. 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. The Ecounter Ecaudor Experience is a journey of conversion that will lead young people to a closer relationship with God and the entire human family.

Ecuador is an absolutely beautiful country. From the city to the mountain side Ecuador is always glowing. Canvas cannot capture how beautiful it is. This trip has opened my eyes to the world and how I can influence it for the better. The people I have met have shown me love driven by Christ. My life has changed. In the span of 10 days Ecuador has opened my eyes.

This experience helped me to open my eyes and to be more grateful about my life. Before this trip I could not see God and I could not open up but this trip really helped me. It was also nice to see how the people of Ecuador are. I just love how they all help each other and work so hard with each other. It was really nice to see that because back home where I live the community is not really close. It was also very nice to be on this trip with all these people. Not only did we all get close, but we think of each other as family now, not just friends. . I hope and wish more people get to come because it is such a nice thing to experience

My Experience in Ecuador has been nothing but amazing. The people here are absolutely beautiful! They made me feel as if I was one of their own. I never felt so much love from different families in my life. Being able to help all of the people here was a blessing to me. God led me on this trip to see how much love and happiness I can see in one community.
