A group of Saint Vincent College students, Benedictine monks and Campus Ministry leaders are currently in China on a service mission trip.
The itinerary included sites such as the Temple of Heaven, a historic religious complex; Gong Wang Fu, a museum of Prince Gong’s Mansion; the Great Wall of China; Fu Jen University, located in New Taipei City; and the Forbidden City, a historic imperial palace in Beijing. Students worked with children at China Little Flower Orphanage. Before returning home, students traveled to Taipei and worked with the Fu Jen University students teaching English at the Guo-Tai camp, an elementary summer camp.
