Elon Spring Break Mission Trip

Over Spring Break 2017, twenty Elon students participated in two separate mission trips. One group traveled to Charleston, SC to volunteer with Habitat for Humanity, while their Catholic Campus Ministry Chaplain, Our Lady of the Angels Province friar, Fr. Peter Tremblay, OFM Conv. lead a group to Montego Bay, Jamaica to serve with Mustard Seed Ministries at their orphanage for children with disabilities.  Those serving in Jamaica we were able to join the bishop of Montego Bay, The Most Reverend Burchell Alexander McPherson, for Mass at the Cathedral, on the first full day and the rest of the week was spent caring for the children, as well as some landscaping on the mission grounds.  It was a powerful and life changing experience for all involved.
