National Service Immersion Experiences

National trips provide students with the opportunity to expand their service into other states within our country.  In the past, Benedictine has traveled to work at a mission parish with Native Americans in Wisconsin and to New Orleans, Louisiana to build and repair homes destroyed by Hurricane Katrina.

National trips are offered during the break periods so that students do not have to miss class. More information about these trips can be found below. 

Sacred Heart Mission Parish

Sacred Heart Mission Parish is located in Hopkins Park, IL.  The people of the parish and in the surrounding community inBr the surrounding community struggle with poverty.  Benedictine University has been trying to help the need for many years.  During the holiday season, Campus Ministry sponsors a collection of various items to try and provide the people with a Christmas that they will be able to enjoy.  Students who participate in this trip will have the opportunity to form deep ties with the wonderful people of Hopkins Park.
