Cost: $700

At the United States-Mexico border, we seek to better understand the realities and implications of migration, including the reasons causing it and how churches or communities of faith are responding to it.

We invite people and communities to see, consider and then explore how to join together in response to such realities. How can we help those who, like us, seek a better life, wholeness and peace?

A pilgrim (from the Latin peregrinus) is a traveler who is on a transformational journey, often to a holy place.

A pilgrimage is a journey, often into an unknown or foreign place, where a person searches for a new or expanded meaning about themselves, others, nature or a higher good. It leads to a personal transformation.
