New opportunities in Costa Rica

January 17, 2013

FrancisCorps in Costa Rica is moving locations in August 2013.  We will be setting up shop in Alajuela, the second largest city of Costa Rica and which is about 10 minutes from the San Jose airport. The volunteers will be living on the friary compound in their own house with individual bedrooms, living room, dining room, kitchen, laundry room and a covered patio for outdoor activities. The friars’ property has many gardens where the volunteers can enjoy the grounds for silence, exploring nature or just enjoying Brother Sun!

Along with the new volunteer house come new ministry sites. We are very proud to announce the signing of agreements with the following agencies in Alajuela where the volunteers will work. The sites are at the most about a 20 minute bus ride away from the friary and offer a variety of opportunities.  Take a moment to look at them and who knows… perhaps YOU are being called to a year of service with FrancisCorps.
