2,584 miles. Language and culture barriers. There are many things separating Dallas, Texas from Quito, Ecuador. To many of us, Ecuador would seem to be in a different world or on a different planet. Many of us haven’t experienced such a unique culture or had the opportunity to meet an Ecuadorian. However, this past summer, 12 Jesuit students and 4...
From April 6 to 10, 2011, students and faculty from Jesuit and three doctors and one social worker went to Guatemala to help the sick of the country. They worked with an organization called The Vamos Mayor in two clinics, one in Panajachel and one in Nahualá. All the teacher and students were from Jesuit’s Medical Society: science teachers Mrs. Jan Jones...
In a small town in southern Peru, a young Peruvian boy tugs on the shirt of a rising Jesuit Dallas senior, his eyes imploring the soon-to-be graduate to stay a few more minutes. The seemingly incredible divide between the two dissolves through a mutual desire to be with each other. As a part of the many summer programs Jesuit offers, the...

Mr. Richard Perry is in charge of the trip to Nicaragua, which thirty-five students will go on, along with Mr. Keith Reese, Ms. Madeline Maggard, Mr. Raul Ornelas, and Mr. Tim Murphy. Meanwhile, Mrs. and Mr. Mattacchione...
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...
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...
