Jesuit summer trips: Jesuit High School students have taken part in mission trips this summer. Earlier this month, 39 students, eight recent alumni, five chaperones and Jesuit president Father Richard Hermes, S.J., left for South America. They visited centuries-old Jesuit missionary sites in Paraguay, the Iguazu Falls near the Brazil-Argentina-Paraguay border and Rio de Janeiro for World Youth Day with Pope Francis.
In June, 10 Jesuit students and two supervisors went to the Rosebud Indian Reservation in South Dakota. They volunteered at a weeklong vacation Bible school at the reservation, where they taught children ages 6-11 biblical stories and basic prayers. The Jesuit students also took part in the annual celebration of the defeat of Gen. George Custer in the Battle of Little Bighorn in 1876 and visited Mount Rushmore.
