Memorial Day Weekend, La Salle kicked off the 2018 Summer Service Program with 26 students and four faculty members participating in the first of six Philadelphia Urban Immersion trips planned for this summer.

This first trip is also special as the students will have the opportunity to honor those who "served" on Monday by participating in the annual wreath laying ceremony at the Philadelphia Vietnam Veteran's Memorial as well as visiting veteran's at the Philadelphia Veteran's Administration Community Living Center.


Throughout the course of the week students will live in community, serve in a variety of social services agencies such as Rock Ministries in Kensington, St. Joan of Arc in Tioga / Torresdale, along with Women of Hope & Sunday Breakfast Rescue Mission in Center City. In addition, students will also participate in an evening of outreach to people living on the streets of Philadelphia; have the opportunity to hear from a variety of speakers including former Deputy DA for the city of Philadelphia, John Delaney; as well as learn about the rich history of individual liberty and dignity which is fundamental to our Catholic social teaching.

Each evening will conclude with a facilitated prayer, reflection, and journaling to help students better understand and provide context for their experience throughout the week.

In addition to the Urban Immersion program for the over 150 rising juniors, La Salle will also be running an additional 11 service immersion experiences for approximately the same number of rising seniors beginning next weekend, where students can take their calling to the next level traveling throughout the United States, Caribbean, and Europe.
