During the second week of March, 11 students and two teachers participated in Carondelet's Ven a Ver San Diego immersion trip. This trip gives students an opportunity to learn about the complex issues surrounding the US/Mexico Border and reflect on these experiences through the lens of faith.
On the trip, students visited Catholic Charities to learn about the immigration process, studied murals at Chicano Park, toured the border with the US Border Patrol, attended the "Mass for Peace" at the University of San Diego, volunteered with Border Angels to provide water to traveling migrants in the desert and visited with day laborers.
"The people we met and places we visited on this trip have helped me better understand immigration and God's works in the world. One thing I can take away from this week is that love has no borders and we are all called to act justly, love tenderly, and walk humbly with you God," said Kylie C. '17.
