Tijuana Full Day Service & Learning Trip

June 25 @ 8:30 am - 6:00 pm

Partner with your neighbors to care for refugees and migrants this summer! World Refugee Day (June 20, 2023) is a perfect time to seek out new opportunities to serve those far from the land they call home and cherished by God. As part of the Year of Service, partner with your congregation and engage in a service activity related to care for migrants and refugees.  Scripture speaks to God’s affection for—and how God’s people are to care for—refugees and immigrants (often referred to as “strangers” in the Bible) over 50 times. Due to our proximity to the U.S.-Mexico border and the many services provided in metro San Diego, our diocese has a significant number of refugees and immigrants from Latin America as well as from around the globe. This is a great opportunity to be the church outside your church walls, to connect with your neighbors in service! Check out the Year of Service webpage to learn more.
