The fruit of a mature Christian life centered in prayer and the sacraments is service to others. Acts of charity more than words proclaim the love of God and promote the dignity of each and every individual. Students are challenged to do acts of service that lead them to encounter the marginalized, offering the students the lifelong possibility of charity. GOAL: Students will be challenged to do acts of service leading them to encounter the dispossessed or marginalized, offering the students the lifelong possibility of charity. They are asked to stretch beyond their comfort zone to become more aware of the difference each of them can make in the lives of others using their own unique God given talents.

BÁNICA, Dominican Republic Diocese of Arlington Mission in the Dominican Republic.
Last year's Mission was April 9 – 14, 2012 An amazing opportunity for PVI students.
Last year's Mission Team was made up of 14 PVI students and 5 Chaperones. Our days included morning work sessions, Parish visits, mural painting in the town with door to door evangelization and social time with the area youth. Students who step up to extra acts of service were considered for the team. Once choosen the Team had fund raisers, social team building events and several meetings to prepare for the trip. We hope to make this an ongoing mission for the Paul VI students.
If you would like to be considered for the next team, stop by the Campus Ministry Office for more information.
