The Office of Campus Ministry offers a few opportunities for students to spend their school breaks engaging in meaningful and transformative experiences through doing an alternative break trip. Trips offered in the past include:
Cincinnati Social Justice Trip
This overnight trip provides students with the opportunity to learn first-hand and grow in understanding about the various social issues that exist within our city through engaging in service activities and visiting social service agencies around the city; encountering our neighbors in need to hear them share their stories; and hands-on experiential learning activities provided through the Ozanam Center for Service Learning at the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, Cincinnati.
New Orleans Mission Service Trip
Since Hurricane Katrina happened in 2005, the Mount has been taking a group of students down to New Orleans to help with hurricane relief. More than 10 years later, the community of New Orleans continues through the recovery process, and our students continue to make the trip down to learn about Hurricane Katrina and its effects on the community, while experiencing the unique, vibrant and resilient culture of New Orleans. During this trip, the students receive the kind hospitality of the House of Charity, while working alongside the St. Bernard Project.
