Mercy Immersion Program

Mercy Center for Spiritual Life

At Salve Regina, addressing the mercy critical concerns of antiracism, women, earth, immigration and nonviolence is integral to the student experience. Creating a world that is harmonious, just and merciful requires up-close engagement with issues of social justice and inequity. The Mercy Immersion Program provides opportunities for students to learn from and serve with those on the margins of society, explores the root causes of injustice and encourages students to be agents of change through acts of mercy.

2022 Virtual Immersion: Nonviolence in El Salvador, May 2-6

The Mercy Immersion Program’s inaugural experience will focus on the critical concern of nonviolence in the country of El Salvador. Participants will partner with International Partners in Mission, an organization that works with women and children to nurture partnerships that build justice, peace and hope through transformational learning opportunities and programs.

One of the central intentions of this immersion is to build community, both among the student participants, and between the participants and local Project Partners in El Salvador. Following the immersion, we hope that student participants will be inspired to share their learnings and insights with their peers on campus to help foster a stronger community at Salve Regina moving forward. 


The Mercy Center will subsidize $400 per student. The remaining $100 will be covered by the student through a $50 deposit and $50 fundraising.
Total program cost per student: $500
