The mission in Cuatro Cienegas partners with the local parish priests and "Plan 2040" to help give spiritual accompaniment and formation to the families in the town. This includes visits to families in their homes, encouraging them to return to the sacraments and join in the opportunities in the town. In the afternoons, missionaries will lead activities for children and young people.
Cuatro Cienegas is one of Mexico's "Pueblos Magicos", known for it's cultural richness & significance. It is a very beautiful and peaceful town, with scientific and religious importance.
St. Joseph is the patron saint of the town, and they have developed a devotional "Way of St. Joseph" that missionaries will participate in, inviting the townspeople to join them.
Missionaries that visited Cuatro Cienegas on a regular basis started this unique organization "Plan 2040" to give ongoing integral follow up to the families of the town. They are so happy to have us join them in their work for the mission.
