About this trip

Come with us on mission to Mexico City with missionaries Craig Johring and Danny Leger of Hope of the Poor!


We are planning full immersion into Our Lady of Guadalupe and her poorest of the poor at the Mexico City homeless women's shelter and the city dump where over 1000 people live and work.To fortify our mission to see Christ in the poor we will visit the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe each  day while in Mexico City.  The basilica is home to the Tilma of Juan Diego occupying  the living image of our mother, our Lady of Guadalupe. 

Our accommodations in Mexico City are at the Concepcioniatas Convent located in the shadow of the Shrine. This historic convent was founded shortly after the apparitions of Our Lady in the early 1500's. It has humble, clean accommodations and excellent food prepared by the sisters.


We will then board a plane Friday morning to decompress in Cabo San Lucas for two days. Craig and Danny will join us in Cabo for a much deserved respite and to build relationship!

There is the option of skipping Cabo for those interested only in Mexico City. Please contact the trip organizer for more details.

A couple of notes: 

We have room for 40 missionaries (20 for Mission & Los Cabos and 20 for Mission only).  The total cost for each option is as follows and includes your one-time $500 donation to Hope of the Poor.

$1950 - 6 day trip (mission and Los Cabos)

$1060 - 4 day trip (mission only)

Families are encouraged and welcome, however, this will not be a good trip for young children. 

As testified by our  missionaries on our maiden voyage last year, this is a life changing event!

Wonderful experience! Wouldn’t want to do it without Mike teaching.
The trip was fantastic from start to finish--truly memorable...
We have nothing but praise for our trip to Israel. Not only were we able to visit the places where Jesus had been, but we felt such a closeness to be at these exact places Jesus and Mary were. It made our faith very real. Each day was a very moving experience. We were so fortunate to have our two sons and daughter-in-laws with us. They made the trip so much easier and I doubt we could have mastered it without their help. Not only were our family of great help, but also everyone else on the trip. We were always offered assistance by fellow pilgrims. Never were we in doubt of the love shared in this group. Mike was excellent in explaining to us where we were, why we were there, and what we should gain from the experience. We were so fortunate to have Mike as our leader. The trip was well planned and the people with us were "awesome". We will never forget this trip into the holy land or the people that made it so special. Ron & Bobbi Wells
We had a wonderful time--- took the whole family and we all loved it! Traveling with Mike and the School of Faith is the best thing we've done with our family. Trinity Travel made it easy for us and we felt like it was a first class experience! Highly recommend it!
The trip was extremely organized, everything ran smooth, the two hotels were excellent, the food in the hotel and restaurants were consistently top quality, our guide Giovanni was very informative and friendly, and Cari and Chris Hillyer were extremely attentive and helpful. All our priests gave impactful, thoughtful homilies. Mike Scherschligt's knowledge and passion for the Holy Land and the Bible cannot be matched. In short, the trip and its deepening of my faith was a once-in-a lifetime experience that will stay with me forever. Thanks to everyone that had a hand in the Pilgrimage.
