The Service & Justice Immersion Program at the Catholic University of America exists to create transformational relationships; To facilitate meaningful encounters that propel us to passionately work for the common good. By sharing in and learning from the lived experiences of our sisters and brothers around the world, we work to create bridges of solidarity between our campus and other communities, both far and near. We are challenged to integrate the values of the Gospel and the social teachings of the Church into our lives, and to encourage change in the lives of those around us.

In May 2021, Campus Ministry will be hosting Immersion Trips to Washington, DC and West Virginia, and a Habitat for Humanity trip in Washington, DC. Trips will be run during two different weeks: May 9-14 (week after finals) and May 16-22 (week after graduation).

More details on the trips can be found by clicking "Trip Locations" below.

Applications are due Saturday, March 27th. Contact Harrison Hanvey, at, with any questions.
