Immersion Programs

Our Approach

The Arrupe Immersion Program is a faith based program responding to the call to work for peace and justice in the world. This call is central to the Christian Scriptures and to the Jesuit mission of the College of the Holy Cross. 

Whether the travel is local, domestic, or international, our primary focus is deepening relationships with others and with God.   The experiences are rooted in prayer and reflection, and any work performed will be secondary to the time we spend with individuals in their environments. Our hope is to allow for the possibility of a more mutual relationship where those who welcome us into their homes or who share their stories with us are not seen primarily as people whom we have come to "help", but rather as companions on the journey.
