2019 India Immersion & Service Trip
That's right Mrs. Fox and Ms. Pereira are headed to India! We will be taking a group of students to Banglore, India to immerse ourselves within the community of the Holy Cross Brothers there. Students please join us for this Great Opportunity to experience another culture and see Holy Cross at work over Seas! We will be limited to 15 students so please don't delay. Students need to see Mrs. Fox or Mrs. Lewis to reserve a spot. Filling fast!
ACCOMMODATIONS We will stay at the Holy Cross Brothers’ residence near their school and orphanage in Bangalore.
SERVICE Holy Cross has been in the area for over 160 years, so Holy Cross has a long history there and has earned considerable respect for their work. The Holy Cross Brothers will serve as our hosts and guides throughout our stay. We will visit and participate in educational and recreational activities with the students at Abhayadhama Human Development Centre and at Holy Cross School, an orphanage and school run by the Congregation of Holy Cross in the Whitefield neighborhood of Bangalore. What a great way to complete your service requirement.
We may also have the opportunity to visit some of the parks and sites in the area, and possibly a side trip meet Ms. Pereira's family and home. Our primary goal is to experience the culture through work with local students, not to tour, so our visit will require open minds and hearts as well as a simple, positive presence among a welcoming people.
WHEN? Mid to late June for about 12 to 14 days. Exact dates and times of departures will be determined by the availability of flights once we know who is going. The group is limited to 15. Sophomores and Juniors who have not been will be given first priority. Current seniors will be considered if spots available.
