Regians Travel to Jamaica for Service Trip

Over the winter recess, 12 Regians traveled to Jamaica to work with the Mustard Seed Communities, a faith-based non-profit organization that cares for more than 500 children and adults with disabilities or HIV/AIDS.

The group was lodged at one of the MSC apostolates and split time doing landscaping work for the community and spending time with the residents — who were mostly children — housed at their apostolate. Many of the children require the constant attention of caregivers, and the Regians helped feed the residents, played with them, and walked them to Mass and prayer services. 

Assistant Principal for Student Life Mr. Christian Mariano '99, one of the chaperones of the trip, complimented the students for their selfless engagement with the communities. “The students responded really well to the trip,” Mr. Mariano said. “Some want to do it again next year. Some might even be interested in starting an MSC trip when they go to college. I think it was a very impactful trip.”

The students benefited from the generous contributions of the entire Regis community. In total, the group raised over $15,000 in recent months, in addition to collecting donations of clothing, bedsheets, and toiletries.
