Due to Covid-19, and the cancellation of Spring Break, trips will take place in May of 2021, immediately after the end of the academic year (if it is safe to do so). Information on the trips and applications will be available in November. Trips will be subject to change or cancellation by St. Mary Student Parish, or the partnering sites.
“Our commitment does not consist exclusively in activities or programs of promotion and assistance; what the Holy Spirit mobilizes is not an unruly activism, but above all an attentiveness which considers the other ‘in a certain sense as one with ourselves.’ This loving attentiveness is the beginning of a true concern for their person which inspires me effectively to seek their good.” –Pope Francis, Evangelli gaudium #199
Alternative Spring Break Introduction
Alternative Spring Break (ASB) enables undergraduate students to reach out beyond themselves and encounter others living on the margins through service and learning. We go to listen and learn. Each trip is different and will focus on the social injustices affecting each community. Through community, solidarity, and mutual giving, you will experience the love of Christ active in the world and in the people you meet. You will work hard, make friends, have fun, and be transformed.
