Carondelet’s Immersion programming is rooted in our CSJ charism to care for the dear neighbor. This, along with the tradition of Catholic Social Teaching make up the foundation of our immersion program.
On Wednesday, students from two Ven a Ver immersion trips shared what they learned and how the experience continues to impact them.
The DC group spoke about attending the Ignatian Family Teach In, which is a conference put on by the Ignatian Solidarity Network. The Ignatian Solidarity Network, which is affiliated with the Jesuits, provides social justice education grounded in Catholic Social Teaching. Read more about the Ignatian Solidarity Network.
The Borderlands group spoke about working with Borderlinks, who is an organization that “connects divided communities, raises awareness about the impact of the border and immigration policies, and inspires action for social transformation.” Read more about Borderlinks.
Ven a Ver is Spanish for the phrase “come and see.” Jesus invited his disciples to “come and see” what he was all about. Today, Jesus continues to invite us to spend time meeting our dear neighbors, learning about the experiences of people from across the world and working for justice so that we may participate in the creation of a world where the dignity of all people and the earth is upheld and respected.
