Service & Immersion

In the spirit of the charism of the Sisters of St. Joseph, the Center for Ministry and Service at Regis College seeks to offer students the opportunity to serve our “Dear Neighbor”. The service programs offered by the Center for Ministry and Service provide students, faculty, and staff the opportunity to stand in solidarity with our Dear Neighbors who find themselves living on the margins of our society. Every year the Center for Ministry and Service offers opportunities for local, national, and international service and immersion trips. These experiences serve as inspiration to everyone who chooses to commit to this type of work and they would not be possible without the outpouring of support from the Regis community. This year we are proud to announce our four service opportunities:

The first two service trips took place at the tail end of the fall semester. In December, 2016, 22 Regis students travelled to either Los Angeles or New Orleans to participate in a week-long immersion trip. Take a moment to learn about their experiences.

Peru Solidarity Trip (spring break)

The Peru solidarity trip was brought to Regis about 11 years ago. It is an international service-learning trip to Villa El Salvador, an urban rural area on the outskirts of Lima - the capital city of Peru. Villa El Salvador is a coastal village with about 400,000 residents and it is located 12 miles outside of Lima. This trip was designed to allow Regis College students to stand and live in solidarity with a community of people that have very different living circumstances than our own. We work with the community, the local church youth group, orphanages, young adults from the local University, and elderly who reside in nursing homes.

Mustard Seed Community Trip Nicaragua Service Trip (Spring Break)

The Center for Ministry and Service is proud to introduce the first ever trip to Nicaragua, in Central America. Regis has partnered with the Mustard Seed Communities organization which is serving 4 different countries Nicaragua being one of them. Students will be visiting Hogar Belen located in Managua, the country’s capital. Mustard Seed focuses on working with children with mental and physical disabilities most of whom were abandoned. This organization also assists women and families that are living in impoverished areas of Managua. Regis students will be able to interact and live in solidarity and service with the Nicaraguan people and experience their culture and history.


We also offer opportunities for local service in our Greater Boston community. If you are interested please call 781-768-7027, visit the Center for Ministry & Service in St. Joseph’s Hall Room 4. We would love to have you join us!
