We’ve Reached So Far!
Help send ten UIC students to Jamaica from Dec 14-20 for their Alternative Winter Break Service Trip. To send these ten students, we must raise $8,500, which will cover their transportation, food, and service trip materials. This trip will be an opportunity to build Christian discipleship, as witnessed through the corporal and spiritual works of mercy, and will be a joint effort with the Franciscan Friars of St. John the Baptist Province in Jamaica. The goals of this trip are to:
~Afford young adults with the opportunity to enact their faith in concrete and fun ways.
~Provide an experience of faith sharing across international lines, especially with those who are materially poor.
~Develop an awareness of the social and cultural diversity of the Catholic Church’s missionary efforts.
~Gain experience as co-missionaries with the Franciscan Friars and to learn about the Franciscan approach to Roman Catholic Missiology
