Back by VERY popular demand, Bapchule is excited to host the Badgers again! Sister Pam is a hero, so much so that people who have gone on service trips here in the past went back on their own to see her again! Love kids? Interested in teaching? Then this is the trip for you! You will be working with the Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity at the St. Peter Indian Mission by helping teachers in the classroom, library, kitchen, and rummage garage. And of course, you will be spending time with the kids!
Men Only Trip: January 3-9
Co-ed Trip: January 10-16
Want to help out a family in need? Sacred Heart Southern Missions is a Catholic ministry in the Diocese of Jackson, Mississippi. Their mission is to be a witness to the all-inclusive love of God revealed in the Sacred Heart of Jesus, to be a voice of compassion for people in need, and to be steadfast in their work for social justice. On these trips, we will aid families in remodeling their homes (constructing cabinets, installing floors, painting, etc.). Get ready for all kinds of hands on service, new friends, and the chance to explore Northern Mississippi/the Memphis, TN metropolis. You’ll definitely be tired by the end of the day. There are two service trips to Walls. The first trip is for men only, and the second one is coed. Email Nate Simon if you are interested in going on this trip
Talcott, West Virginia
Looking to experience a winter in the Appalachian Mountains? Bethlehem Farm is a Catholic Community which serves its neighborhood through home repair, as well as by teaching sustainable practices in agriculture. Take a vacation from technology for the week, help prepare community meals from scratch, and live in simplicity while working to take care of God’s creation (plants and animals) alongside other college students from around the United States!
God knows us and loves us perfectly. It’s about time we set out to learn more about Him in return! This trip, hosted by the Community of the Beatitudes, is a wonderful blend of service and spirituality. The service portion may consist of anything from manual projects on the retreat grounds, evangelization, and witnessing to their community of Spanish-speaking youth. The spiritual portion of the trip will include teachings about the Church’s roots, participating in the Sacraments (including the Byzantine divine liturgy), and dwelling in the Lord as we serve others. To top it off, you will hike or snow-shoe up to cabins in the Colorado mountains in which you will be staying.
