Catholic Terps are going on a Mission Trip to Mexico City from March 18 – 23, 2023.

We will be hosted by Craig Johring, founder of Hope of the Poor. Craig has served the poor and worked with mission groups in Mexico City for over ten years. You can read more about Craig and his amazing mission work here. Fr. Conrad and MJ will also be leading the trip; they have served with Craig on several trips to Mexico City. There are 30 spots available on the trip and this has filled up quickly in the past!

The goal of our trip is to encounter Christ in the poorest of the poor: in street kids and the elderly, infirm women and families living in the trash dumps of Mexico City (pictured on right). We will visit Our Lady of Guadalupe at the National Basilica, the most visited pilgrimage site in the entire world, each day we are on mission. Our lodging and meals will be provided through a retreat house run by religious sisters. Each day will include Mass, Holy Hour, meals, encounters with the poor and small group reflection.

Trip Cost

We are currently working on securing a group rate for our flights to Mexico so once we have that information we will share!
