  • Service Trip - Alaska 

    When most people think about missionary work, they do not think about Alaska. Yet, Alaska is missionary land. At the invitation of Bishop Edward Burns, Bishop of Juneau, Campus Ministry sponsored a service trip to work in the Diocese of Juneau, which is the size of the State of Florida and 10.2% Catholic. The Diocese has 11 parishes and 15 missions which are served by only 9 priests. As a result, our students were received by the Bishop and people of the Diocese with open arms. While in Alaska the students prayed and worked at parishes and missions in Juneau and Skagway, and visited the Shrine of Saint Therese, the Patron of Alaska.

    The participants not only gained a deeper understanding of the Gospel message to help those who are in need, but they also had the opportunity to interact with the local residents, visit historical sites, and thus expand their perspective of the world and its different cultures.
