“It is frustrating and even embarrassing when you can’t hear a confession or console someone someone in a hospital because of an inability to communicate.”
Missions in America was a spiritual challenge, combining words and gestures, action, images and symbols. All these elements enriched the capacity of this culture facilitating the joyful acceptance of the Saving Message.
The St. Junipero Serra Institute offers aunique curriculum that has been developed for the specific purpose of equipping those in pastoral leadership with both a secular and a Catholic vocabulary, so often needed today in the daily pastoral, sacramental, and evangelical aspects of the priestly vocation.
Participants in the program live, study, and pray in community but go out on day trips, visit and interact with local people, and have many other opportunities to practice the language.
