The Winter Immersion program is not just a week-long immersion. Rather, it is a 2 semester program that invites you into our mission. We work hard to create engaging and thought-provoking prep and processing meetings that will assist you in understanding language and education around the injustice of ALL WIP immersion sites. We also aim to guide you in deepening your faith or spirituality through reflection, prayer, and group activities.
2. You will be on site at your immersion location for 7-10 days
3. WIP is a faith-based program rooted in Gospel values, Jesuit ideals, Catholic Social Teaching principles, liberation theology, and the integration of faith and justice. All faith backgrounds are welcome to participate and deepen their personal faith and spirituality. Prayer, discussion, and reflection experiences are central to the program.
4.WIP upholds imago dei, which states every person is made in the image of God. WIP also upholds the human dignity of every single participant. The Winter Immersion Program is supportive and active on issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion.
5. Please read the WIP 2021 policy when it is made avaialble.
