Requirements

 

The program requires a significant commitment and one that needs to be entered into with some prayerful discernment and the ability to make space in your life for personal enrichment. The program consists of:

  • An immersion experience where you will have the opportunity to interact with those in the community who are living in poverty. These experiences are usually held at a local nonprofit on Saturdays.  One experience will be volunteering at the Thanksgiving Dinner & Clothing Boutique at St. Monica.
  • A retreat is held in the first and last phases to allow for you and your group members to learn more about each other and explore a topic in more depth.
