Prep students experience Rostro de Cristo in Ecuador

A group of Fairfield Prep students had the privilege of spending April break with the community of Arbolito in Ecuador. Prep's continued partnership with Rostro de Cristo continues to introduces students to wonderful neighbors in the community as well as various organizations that support the community. This year, Prep's group visited organizations such as Padre Damien House (a home for people living with Hansen's disease – more commonly known as leprosy) and Semillas de Mostaza (an after-school program for children in the community). The group was warmly welcomed into many homes of families in the area for meaningful conversation about diverse topics. Rostro's program focuses strongly on building relationships and deepening the faith and commitment to issues of justice of their retreatants, and we believe that their intention was met by many of the students who shared in this immersion experience.
