Somos Iglesia en Camino

Somos Iglesia en Camino es un entrenamiento/proceso de capacitación para las parroquias que se centra en la formación de grupos que pueden conducir a sus congregaciones en la transformación comunitaria integrada entre la comunidad inmigrante y los que están sufriendo en pobreza. Sobre la base de la Palabra de Dios y la doctrina social de la iglesia, Somos Iglesia en Camino equipa a la parroquia de vivir la misión que nos ha dado el Señor Jesús de ir y hacer discipulos a todas las naciones (Mateo 28:18-20), expresando el amor de Dios a través de hacer justicia, amar la misericordia, y crecer en nuestra amistad con Jesús.  

Somos Iglesia en Camino (We are the Church on the Way) is a training/equipping process for parishes which focuses on forming groups which can lead their congregatinos into integrated community transformation among the immigrant community and the least of these. Based on the Word of God and Catholic Social Teaching, Somos Iglesia en Camino equips the parish to live out the mission given to us by the Lord to go and make disciples of all nations
(Matthew 28:18-20), practically expressing the love of God through doing justice, loving mercy, and growing in our friendship with Jesus.
