Service Immersion Peru, Spring Break 2017

March 17, 2017


Over spring break, many students, faculty, staff, and alums embarked on H.O.P.E. service immersion trips at home and abroad. We note just one example from Canto Grande near Lima, Peru. There, the 15 strong H.O.P.E. group worked with locals at Fe y Alegria, a Holy Cross school, and Yancana Huasy, a facility for children with intellectual & developmental disabilities. They also assisted a local family install a wheelchair ramp, remodeling their home to support a child with cerebral palsy.
