Urban Immersion

The Urban Immersion program is designed to offer groups a chance to learn, listen, and serve alongside one another in the heart of the quintessential urban environment, New York City. The goal is not only to offer volunteer opportunities, but also to challenge participants to ask difficult questions and explore together how our faith fits into this experience.
