Mid-Semester Trips

Do more than fill your photo album. Fill your soul.

Spend Holy Week, Easter weekend, or Thanksgiving weekend on a trip retracing the ancient paths taken by saints and ordinary travelers for centuries. Unlike any other "excursion" you may take during your semester abroad, Journey is about much more than the destination: It's about a sacred encounter.

All four trips give you the chance to learn from the spiritual history of the surroundings, including early Christian communities and writings, ancient spiritual practices of prayer and reflection, the stunning beauty of the land, and a community experience.

No matter which Journey you choose, anyone who is open to seeking God—regardless of religious affiliation or belief—can have an authentic, rich encounter with the divine.

If you're someone who is seeking something more than just a whirlwind tour of an interesting location — deeper spirituality, guidance, or healing — join us on the journey...
