Bruins Serve on Annual Mission Trip

June 20th, 2019 | News

Padua students and recent graduates, along with Director of Campus Ministry, Deacon Matt Harley, traveled to the Dominican Republic with Fr. Bob Stec ’79 and Mission Possible to serve on a mission trip.  They painted new houses to provide homes for families, moved new families into the community and spread gravel to help with drainage around the houses.

Since 2013, Padua has partnered with Mission Possible, an outreach effort from The FEST and Saint Ambrose Parish, for several years. Their goal is to annually develop a new, self-sufficient community in the Dominican Republic that is focused on faith, values, education and healthier living conditions.
