Ursuline’s service for others enhances faith experience at home
Ursuline Academy's “Beyond our Borders” immersion program sends students on service learning trips to teach others and build structures in impoverished areas such as Guyana, South America and Belize. Students spend a year prepping for the trip and then share experiences and implement service strategies at home. Recently, Jesuit Father Ed Gros commissioned the 2017 Beyond Our Borders participants by anointing their hands with blessed oil. The students made promises to share their talents, faithfully serve others and share Christ's message.
