Teaching – San Esteban
Be a visible expression of solidarity with the faithful at the Mission of San Esteban, outside of Mexico City. With the blessing of His Eminence Archbishop Alejo, Archbishop of Mexico City, this Team has been invited to be part of the life of the faithful, to offer youth and adult catechism and to worship in the community of San Esteban, the first Martyr.
The 2014 Teaching Team will travel northwest of Mexico City to the remote community of San Esteban to offer catechism to both youth and adults. In the mornings, the youth will be gathered and taught basic lessons on the Orthodox Faith. In the afternoons, the Team will offer adult catechism, have time to pray together and enjoy fellowship. The Team will also visit and celebrate the Divine Liturgy in Mexico City.
Young Mexicans are facing many obstacles in their Christian walk due to social pressure that living in an increasingly westernized society places on them. San Esteban is a mission parish and a priest visits only a few times a month. Land has been blessed for the future construction of a home for the priest.
This is a unique opportunity to engage both the younger generation and older generation of Mexicans, and allows you to share your Faith and be a part of a Christian witness. This team will be led by Fr. Antonio Perdomo and Fr. Theodore Pisarchuk.
Participants with experience in youth ministry and adult catechism are urged to apply. Conversational Spanish is recommended.
Share your Orthodox faith with the faithful of Mexico.
