Rising seniors in the class of 2024 recently returned from their service trip to the Border Project of the Rio Grande Valley (located in Brownsville, TX). The Jesuit run mission serves food and provides clothing or other material items to migrants on the Texas and Mexico side of the border as well as spiritual care such as Masses, confessions, etc. The annual summer service project requires rising seniors to complete over 100 hours of service working directly with people in need. In addition to helping migrants along the border, the Jesuit group was excited to provide the mission with a check for $15,000. The funds were raised by the generous donations of the Blue Jay community, students, faculty, and staff during the annual Mission Drive held each Lent. Photo credit Fr. John Polce, S.J.
