Rostro de Cristo inspires a lifelong commitment to a faith that works for justice through transformative, intercultural experiences living the Gospel of Christ in solidarity with marginalized communities.
Our program is currently located in Ecuador and opportunities to participate include:
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.”
– Pope Francis
