Alternative Spring Break trip

Each year, Drexel Newman sponsors an alternative spring break trip for students who wish to spend their break doing service. This year, we will be going to Denver, CO to work with Christ in the City. The week will be spent serving both within homeless shelters as well as throughout downtown on 16th Street Mall, Capitol Hill or the Platte River. Participants will engage in education surrounding homelessness, spirituality, and Catholic Social Teaching, as well as have opportunities for prayer.

Stay tuned for 2019 dates!
