A Time for Thanksgiving

“I am thankful for my acceptance in a country, a culture that is not my own. That I am granted the patience from neighbors and community partners as I improve my language skills. That I am welcomed with open arms, hugs, meals, and a place to feel home.” (Stephanie Sickinger, RdC Volunteer in Arbolito)

Become a Volunteer

Rostro de Cristo recruits, trains, and supports young adults who serve for one or two years as a full-time volunteer. Volunteers live in marginalized communities which lack access to basic human needs and partner with local organizations which respond to these needs. They form an intentional Christian community supporting one another, praying together, and helping each other grow and learn.

“True joy is born from the encounter, from the relationships with others. We must create a culture of encounter, a culture of friendship, a culture in which we find brothers and sisters…They all have something in common with us: they are images of God.”
