T-Shirt Fundraiser for Peru Trip
In March 2019, eight students and two faculty members will be living the Edmund Rice mission through a ten day advocacy trip to Lima, Peru. Over the course of the trip, our students and faculty will be building a home for a family in Peru, performing daily acts of service throughout the city, and traveling to Machu Picchu for a once in a lifetime adventure. Our students have designed a shirt to commemorate the mission trip. We invite you to support Peru 2019 through the purchase of our shirt. You can purchase a shirt here! You may choose to have your shirt shipped directly to your home or to STL. Contact Ms. Paraga at with questions.
