Immersion Trips

Weeklong service immersion programs are available over Spring Break and during the summer.

These trips are opportunities for Prep students to go away, together with their peers, to gain an appreciation for the reality of the people they meet and to come back to the Prep community to share their stories. Students serve, build community, pray and reflect on all service immersion programs. All prayer and reflection is rooted in the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius.
