Departing 26th June – 10th July


Pray for us, the people we will serve, and for also for the people who will serve us.


The ‘Beyond the Norm’ programme aims to give participants the opportunity to encounter South America within a supportive environment. It creates new experiences, new opportunities and new challenges. It provides the setting in which volunteers experience mission and cultural diversity first-hand. This year Geoff Hamilton will lead a team of 13 skilled men from Annaghmore Parish in Armagh diocese. This is a developing story as Annaghmore has been a supporting church for many years, and the link has evolved and become more relational. Pamela Gomez from Salta in Argentina was placed within the parish as part of the SAMS fusion programme. Pamela was deeply enriched through her placement and she will be one of the people overseeing the team’s summer placement. The local rector Dorothy McVeigh will be part of the ‘Beyond the Norm’ team which will participate in various projects.


Only a life lived for others is a life worthwhile.
