Immersion Opportunities

The Holy Cross Mission Center collaborates with sponsoring organizations at Holy Cross colleges, universities, parishes, and schools to help students, faculty, staff, and parishioners experience firsthand the communities at our international ministry sites. The Mission Center is available to provide connections, country or site-specific education, pre-trip formation, and post-trip guided retreats for medical mission trips, service-immersion experiences, or academic research opportunities.

Educational Opportunities

Learn about the missionary history and ongoing work of Holy Cross abroad with custom-tailored presentations by the Mission Center staff. Example topics include:

  • Missionary Profiles: “Ganguly, McCauley, & Flavian: Future Saints from Holy Cross Missions”
  • Director Debriefs: “Holy Cross in Kenya Today”
  • Info Sessions: “Why Travel to a Holy Cross Mission?”

The Mission Center also has resources and adaptable lesson plans available for teachers to integrate Holy Cross missionary history into the classroom.
