The January trip filled, so we added another!
January 17 - 22, 2015 and March 21-26, 2015
The January trip to the St. Francis Inn is filled, and so we are adding a second! March 21 - 26, 2015 will be the Alternative Spring Break trip. 10 students are welcome to join this adventure. Like the January trip, it will cost students $60. to participate. Email Alice for an application. firstname.lastname@example.org
Ever thought of participating in a week long service trip? Are you ready to have your stereotypes challenged a bit? What about living a bit more simply than an average week?
Here is your chance...January 17-January 22, 2015. Come back to Rochester the week before classes begin for spring semester and join us on this adventure. The cost will be $60. and will include transportation to and from RIT, most meals and housing at the Inn.
Space is limited to 9 participants for this service experience.
St. Francis Inn is a Catholic Franciscan community located in the Kensington neighborhood of Philadelphia where they minister among the poor and homeless with a soup kitchen, a thrift shop and a women's center. The community seeks to empower persons to break the cycle of homelessness and poverty through addressing structural injustices by building relationships, respecting human dignity and helping the guests restore hope in their lives. The Franciscan community lives a simple lifestyle in the neighborhood among the poor and homeless.
