Students use a  prayer and reflection guide in Punta Gorda.

Catholic University students and faculty participated last month in a variety of study abroad and community outreach opportunities in the United States and around the globe. Groups of students with the Office of Campus Ministry traveled to Punta Gorda, Belize; engaged in an immersion trip to the U.S./Mexico border learning about immigration issues; and participated in a pilgrimage trip to Rome and Assisi.

University students and faculty have participated in a pilgrimage of solidarity at the border for the past five years. In preparation for this annual mission trip, students spend a semester learning about Catholic social teaching, the theology of mission, historical and contemporary U.S. immigration policy, the Catholic response to immigrants, and solidarity with the poor.
