WILMINGTON, MA — Wilmington resident Jacqueline Parece, a nursing major of the Class of 2017 at Saint Anselm College, co-led a trip during the week of January 7 to January 14.
Saint Anselm College’s Service and Solidarity program of the Office of Campus Ministry sent 10 trips, containing a total of 144 students, to different locations around the U.S. and to the Dominican Republic to serve with a diverse group of communities. These trips, led solely by students who have been trained and prepared, engaged in direct and indirect service, ranging from disaster relief to assisting in a hospitality house.
Parece’s group traveled to Hartford, Connecticut, and worked with the Catholic Worker House of Hartford, assisting the community with outreach efforts to the local school-aged children in the area, including neighborhood cleanup efforts and shoveling snow to ensure that the children had a safe path to school.
A total of 20 students from Saint Anselm College led trips all around United States and abroad.
