PAX offers a study abroad opportunity in conjunction with University Ministry.
Each year over 150 DePaul students choose to dedicate their Spring or
Winter break to service, reflection, simplicity, community,
spirituality and social justice during a Service Immersion. You have the
opportunity to serve, live, and build relationships with more than 15
marginalized communities throughout the United States and the Americas.
Share the lives and history of the people of El Salvador for ten days.
You will live with families of San Jacinto, a Vincentian parish located
on the outskirts of San Salvador. There you may serve in the
parish day care center, an elderly care center, an orphanage and/or
other ministries with the Daughters of Charity. Service will also
include learning about and listening to the stories of the people you
will meet; what their lives were like before the Civil War, during the
war (1980-1992) and since the peace accords of 1992. You will also have
the opportunity to visit historical and spiritual sites, including
memorial sites of people executed because of their opposition to human
rights abuses and violent repression by the military during the 1970's
There are other service opportunities through Student Affairs.
