    Letter from Fr. Juan

    Dear Friends, The Sea of Galilee is the remarkable stage in which Jesus chose to carry out many of his gospel teachings. The majority of them have one thing in common: Man’s capacity is limited and must turn to the power of God. We see this theme being taught clearly on the night of the […]

    It’s been three weeks since I arrived to Magdala and I can truly say it is hard to get used to seeing the Lake of Galilee every morning, to stand on the same shores where He called his first apostles, to walk where He walked, to pray in the land where He performed so many […]

    A Time of Wonderful Experiences. By Luisa de la Selva

    There are experiences in your life which change you. For me, Magdala was one of these. When I returned to Mexico after my volunteering, my friends and family asked me about my experience.

    Magdala has Captivated Us. By Sanjuan Sanchez Family

    This past summer we have lived a different style of family vacation. We volunteered in Magdala.
