Immersed in Central America

The Senior Arrupe Scholars pose during an excursion to Antigua, Guatemala We welcome back TWO immersion trips this  week that made the most of their winter break in service with others.  Right now we are proud to focus  on the Arrupe Scholars that returned from El Salvador after volunteering with Project FIAT.  While in Central America,  they performed service that ranged from visiting an orphanage to  building and laying the foundation for a school.  This was supplemented with experiences to learn about the nation’s history, economy and culture to give context to people they met there.  The group also studied the life and mission of Archbishop Oscar Romero as he worked passionately for  the poor of the country before his assassination in 1980.  Everyone  returned home safely with a better understanding of this beautiful  country and warm memories of the people that were so welcoming.
