The Urban Immersion program, now a part of Service & Solidarity Missions program, is organized through the Office of Campus Ministry. This program, through its student leaders, seeks to guide participants in service and prayer through day or weekend-long trips to the inner city.
Students have immersed themselves into these cities through "Jesus Runs" with the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal, delivering sandwiches to the homless in New York City, to getting tours of Boston from "the view of the homeless" and making care packages with the Ecclesia Ministries City Reach program.
It is the hope of the program that each participant is awakened to a world outside of their comfort zone and is inspired by the possibility that one's very own hands can impact the lives of others in a Christ-like way through faith in action.
