Cross-Cultural Mission Experiences
Why does Spiritan Campus Ministry take students on Cross-Cultural Mission Experiences?
In keeping with the Spiritan's ideals of "going to the poorest of the poor" to places in the world where no one else wants to go, SCM uses the CCME'S as an opportunity to introduce students to other cultures and the Spiritan way of life. CCME's are a faith based community engagement opportunity that allows students to engage in service, cultural immersion, and spiritual growth. Our trips are short-term experiences during Spring Break, and in the summer. Check out the links below that offer details.
Applications for CCME's are available ONLINE at the beginning of the Fall Semester each academic year. Check back during the first week of classes for application links and instructions!!!
