Almost 100 students and staff at the Catholic University of America are giving up their spring break to take part in mission trips abroad and service projects within the U.S.
Brother Jim Moore, O.F.M. Conv., said there was a "tremendous response" among students to the proposal to make a mission trip.
"It's great for me … to see their faith, to see their excitement about living out the Gospel in what they do," he said in a Feb. 27 statement.
Br. Moore, who is coordinating the trips, is the university's associate campus minister for justice and missions. The mission trips and domestic service projects are taking place over the university's spring break from March 4 to March 10.
