Participants will have opportunities for mission work, such as, serving the poor of the Sierra Madres, visiting a hospital for AIDS patients, as well as helping in poor neighborhoods around Puebla.
The Archbishop of Puebla has appointed a priest of the archdiocese to assist in placing program participants in parishes when their Spanish has reached an adequate level of competence.
