Students at the Monastery of Christ in the Desert

Alternative Spring Break Mission Trips

Christ in the Desert Retreat

This trip will take place over Spring Break 2020. This is a “silent” retreat intended to focus on prayer and meditation and a meaningful “break” from the daily and weekly grind of college life. If you’re seeking spiritual renewal, this is for you.
 

The application deadline is February 9, 2020.

For more information, contact the Chapel’s C. Eric Lincoln Minister for Student Engagement.

Past Mission Trips

Costa Rica Mission Trip

Usually a ten day round-trip, it consists of participating in a build project at a partner Christian organization in Costa Rica with ties to Durham and Duke University. Enrolling in a house course is required to participate in this trip (please email Bruce directly with questions about enrollment) and it focuses on group engagement and cultural participation of the local Costa Rican culture.
