Immersion Trips

Each year, Saint Peter’s Prep runs a number of Christian Service summer immersion trips. Students and faculty who participate in these trips speak of engaging and eye-opening experiences. These trips are a chance for Prep students to leave their own realities behind for a week and live in complete solidarity with the poor and marginalized – whether it is children in Appalachia, victims of gang violence in Camden, or families experiencing poverty in Ecuador. Please see the sidebar for details about specific locations.

Mr. O'Connell will work with each applicant to the Summer Immersion program to find a trip that will fit his specific tastes and talents. Please contact him at or (201) 547-6457 with any questions.

When the heart is touched by direct experience, the mind may be challenged to change. –Fr. Peter Hans Kolvenbach, S.J.
