Seventh in a series on the Bishop's Appeal

By Anthony Malcore
Compass Correspondent

Ten students from the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay Ecumenical Center will spend their spring break not on a Florida beach, but in service to parishioners in the Green Bay Diocese's mission at Elias Piña in the Dominican Republic.

The students will spend the week of March 17-26 working on an aqueduct system, painting buildings and digging latrines.

The purpose of the Alternative Spring Break trip, which is supported in part by the Bishop's Appeal and a grant from the Catholic Foundation for the Diocese of Green Bay is "to serve those most in need" and "to share in a culture very different from our own, learn about this culture, and reflect on the experience in light of their faith."   Full story ...
