News Coverage of Jesuit Mission/Immersion Trips

Poverty terrorizes people and families in America.  People struggle to provide food for children, make payments on a house, or simply keep running water in their systems.  Poverty has become an increasingly prominent issue and affects people's everyday lives. However, despite the immense poverty in America, most countries suffer far more than we do.  Regardless of our desire to help...
Nearly scraping the Arctic circle and only miles away from Russia, sunny skies and frigid temperatures characterize, Bethel, a conglomeration of towns in southwest Alaska which service about 75 running fishing villages that range up to 4 or 5 hours upriver. As the ninth-most populous city in Alaska, with just over 6,300 people, this may seem like an unordinary...
Comfortable clothes, a warm bed, an air-conditioned home, filling food, and thirst-quenching drinks. All commodities the Jesuit junior group who trekked to Waco for an eye-opening weekend full of sweat, hunger, and discomfort did not have.

But besides a glimpse into culture, these students will work to better the lives of the people...
The crisp morning air swirled past the Jesuit student’s face. He gazed out over the lush green forest sprawled out beneath him, his jaw hanging open in amazement at the world he saw before him. He turned his head, glancing at the endless miles of fortress cutting through the canopy. This was the scene before Jesuit students and teachers...
A student steps forward slowly onto the dark, green grass, his eyes fixated on a small edifice in front of him. Beside him, two of his fellow friends also trek forward, their gaze shifting towards the structure. The building stands level with those around it, a seemingly insignificant house or store. However, erupting from the light brown roof, a...
As the bus skittered to a halt, the student’s eyes fling open, awoken from his nap. “We’re here,” he realized, as he stood up with 20 of his Jesuit brothers and faculty, all of them filing off the bus. In front of them, a sidewalk ran up to a worn-out, aged school that doubled as an orphanage for girls, ages ranging from...
