Victoria Turner 223x223 150x150Community: Monte Sinai Site Placement: Casa de Acogida, Hogar de CristoVictoria is from Yardley, PA and recently graduated from Catholic University of America with a B.A. in Social Work and minor in Spanish.

Why Victoria chose RdC
I had the opportunity to participate in Rostro de Cristo in Ecuador as a retreatant. I had transformative experiences and witnessed the relationships the volunteers had built with neighbors in the communities. I hope to continue deepening my relationship with God and find the beauty of Christ that exists through our neighbors in Ecuador’s joy, suffering, and pain. I hope to gain a better understanding of the Latin American history and culture and to gain new perspective on what it means to live simply. Lastly, I hope to guide the retreat groups that will visit to have transformative and eye-opening experiences as I did.
