Recently, Executive Director Oscar Dussán, longtime volunteer and major donor Ms. Pauline Beh, and longtime supporter Judge Terrence Bronson had the honor of conferring with Cardinal Peter Turkson in Rome. Cardinal Turkson is President of the Pontifical Council of Peace and Justice, which is part of the Roman Curia dedicated to the international promotion of justice, peace, and human rights.

At the meeting, Cardinal Turkson and the Pontifical Council received reports on International Samaritan Service Trips and other programs. The Cardinal was impressed by the results of our work and encouraged institutions participating in Service Learning Trips to continue to put their faith in action through our much-needed ministry.
