We believe the best way to know another reality is to experience it first-hand. Cristo Rey offers an intense educational immersion experience for adults, university students, and youth groups. Participants have a chance to: 

 

  • hear personal accounts of border life from our members

  • visit the fence between El Paso and Juárez and hear stories of members and friends who live in Juarez 

  • meet with promoters of social justice in El Paso through non-profit organizations and ministries

  • participate in a discussion with Border Patrol 

  • meet with an immigration lawyer 

  • work with youth at Cristo Rey's After School Program

  • visit the colonias of El Paso, Texas and, if desired, Juárez, México 

  • experience Mexican and Mexican-American culture

  • participate in fellowship with the Cristo Rey congregation
