Villanova College (King City, Ontario, Canada) embarked on its second religious mission excursion to the town of Morropón in Northern Peru this past July. The purpose of this Augustinian missionary trip is to serve the spiritual and material needs of the Peruvian people.
Nine students and two teachers from Villanova College participated in this 17-day experience, interacting on many levels with the locals and the people from neighboring towns. This involvement included teaching English at two high schools, assisting at a school for children with special needs and at an orphanage, participating in youth group meetings, interacting with the elderly at an old age home, attending daily Mass, and making new friends in the community. A special thank you to the teachers, Ms. Picerno and Mr. Rick, for all of their efforts to organize this opportunity for the students of Villanova College. Congratulations to the following Grade 12 students for completing the mission: Faiza Agyemang, Jenna Bifolchi, Adriana Caravaggio (alumni, second time doing the experience), Lindsay Hatt, Andrea Lackowicz, Claudia Naccarato, Natalie Pignetti, Alana Sullivan, and Francesca Vance.
