Service Opportunities

Hello and thank you for your interest in these transformative, life giving international service trip opportunities in collaboration with the Diocese of Joliet. UNFORTUNATELY, due to Covid19 Restrictions, neither of these service trips have certain future dates at this time.  Normally, the Bolivia trip occurs in June and the Philippines trip at the end of December into January.  Please still read up on the experiences below that will hopefully make a return in the future.  And feel free to share contact info by filling out this google form: https://forms.gle/UDLN7Q7aw1jzQ2u4A.

Then, we can be sure to share information as soon as we know more!  Any other questions, please contact Diana Lockett – dlockett1@lewisu.edu.
