Alternative February Break
Service Learning Trip
in the heart of Appalachia, West Virginia
The mission of Catherine McAuley (the founder of the Sisters of Mercy) - educating the whole person spiritually, intellectually and morally - is instilled in each student, thus, creating a desire to help others in need as they develop as adolescents. Our goal is to provide our young women the opportunity to learn this through a unique retreat -like service immersion trip. The spirit of Catherine McAuley deepens our sense of reaching out. The spirit calls us to connect and challenge ourselves to go beyond our comfort zone and truly help those in need. We will be travelling to
