Eleven St. Norbert College students will visit Philadelphia, Pa. from Saturday, Jan. 16 to Saturday, Jan. 23, as part of the TRIPS alternative break service program. While there, the participants will work with men who are experiencing homelessness and are connected with Our Brothers' Place, a shelter serving the needs of 300 men. They will meet with staff to learn about homelessness, do manual labor, serve lunch and interact with the guests. Participants will also live and pray with the Norbertines. The students will stay at Daylesford Abbey and have the opportunity to participate in morning and evening prayer as well as mass on site.

Participants in the Philadelphia trip are listed below.

Trip Leaders: Rachel Pischke (Green Bay, Wis.), Adam Strube (Lemont, Ill.)

Other Participants: Stephanie Bulandr (Long Grove, Ill.), Anne Geenen (Appleton, Wis.), Danielle Harris (Monona, Wis.), Lizzie Jazwiec (Elgin, Ill.), McKenna Kling (Hartland, Wis.), Courtney Krause (Mishicot, Wis.), Jenna McDonough (Green Bay, Wis.), Bailey Pischke (Green Bay, Wis.) and Dana Schwab (Milwaukee, Wis.)

TRIPS (an acronym for Turning Responsibility Into Powerful Service) is an alternative break program organized by the Sturzl Center for Community Service and Learning at St. Norbert College. It is designed to give students the opportunity to put their beliefs into action through service and solidarity with various communities. TRIPS challenges students to participate in a week or more of service in areas throughout the United States and the world.
