Service Immersion Mission Trips
Each year, Jesuit High School students take numerous service immersion trips near and far. These mission trips frequently take place for 7-10 days during the summer but can occur during other breaks from school.
For many years, student contingents representing Jesuit have served those less fortunate in South Dakota, several locales in Appalachia (trips to north Georgia, southern Virginia, and South Carolina), Nicaragua, Colombia, and Guatemala. In addition, members of the service club Agmen Christi travel to Belle Glade several times annually to assist the community there, and many Jesuit students and alumni have participated in the Muscular Dystrophy Association's Summer Camp for kids each year, a week-long, overnight camp formerly in Brandon and now in Umatilla.
Whether locally, throughout Florida, across the country, or abroad, Jesuit students are committed to serving those less fortunate. After many service immersion mission trips were cancelled during the summer of 2020 and 2021 due to COVID-19, they returned in full force in the summer of 2022. The Fall 2022 edition of Perspectives has several stories about summer 2022 mission trips to Colombia (below), South Dakota, Jasper, Ga. (above), plus the Leadership Retreat to Wyoming and Utah and the two-week European Pilgrimage.
