CNR Students "Plunge" into Community Service for the People of Ecuador
CNR students and staff members traveled to Ecuador for the 2011 Plunge Service Trip during March Spring break to work with communities in and around Guayaquil with the organization Rostro de Cristo (RDC). RDC is a volunteer and retreat program of the Catholic Church based in Duran, near Guayaquil.
RDC is a program whose mission is to provide spiritual and educational opportunities for young people from the United States with the people of Ecuador. Through simplicity, intentional community, and relationships rooted in solidarity, young people explore what it means to live out the Gospel of Jesus Christ. RDC is an official partner of Catholic Relief Services.
As always, CNR students "plunged" into the week - into the culture, into acts of service, into relationships with the people of Ecuador.
