happy august 6 boliviaThe Maryknoll Bolivia Mission Immersion Program is a chance for North Americans to explore mission together with Maryknoll, and to learn about the realities of life in Bolivia. We offer two kinds of opportunities for you to come to Bolivia with Maryknoll and get a taste of what mission here is all about.
Maryknoll is a Catholic, U.S.-based cross-cultural mission movement. We’ve been around for over 100 years, and we’ve been in Bolivia for over 70 of those. We’re passionate about mission – about living the Gospel in relationship with people of other cultures, especially the poor and marginalized, and discovering God as we walk together in solidarity. We’re also passionate about Bolivia, and the people here who’ve taught us so much. We believe North Americans have much to learn from the richly diverse indigenous cultures of Bolivia, the struggles of the people, and the exciting social and political changes taking place here in recent years. So, in 2007, we started the immersion program. Check it out – we hope you’ll join us!


This was a good experience with opportunities to learn patience and friendship, and to form a community; it was much, much more than just learning a language.

I would like to say thank you to my teachers and everybody at the Institute for your work and your patience.  You all created a second home for me in Bolivia.
