The Mexican American Catholic College is a national leader in multicultural formation programs.

Catholic Extension in conjunction with Mexican-American Catholic College (MACC) offers well-rounded Latino young adults who have completed diocesan formation and are looking for subsequent opportunities to learn and serve, a unique theological education and mission experience. The program is national in scope and crosses geographic and socio-economic borders with participants from diverse backgrounds. Through it, we seek to create pathways for emerging Latino leaders to discover more about their faith, society, culture, and to discern how they are being called to build a stronger Church and world.

The program will gather cohorts of 12 students to participate in a two-week intensive that will include prayer, theological lectures, a border/migrant immersion during its first week, and a supervised missionary immersion experience among a marginalized community in our country in it’s second week.

Duration:2 weeks (1 week on campus at MACC during the spring, 1 week immersion experience during summer)
