he Brother David Darst Center provides unique learning and immersion opportunities that explore issues of social justice through the lens of Christian social teachings of peace, justice and respect for human dignity and the environment. We seek to inspire a responsive, active faith, a commitment to serve, and a passion for social change.
The Urban Immersion Retreat serves as a tool to be introduced to and explore issues of justice and the reality of oppression. Through partnerships with local agencies, retreat participants are able to get to know people, to challenge stereotypes, to confront fears, and to break down barriers that “protect” us from the unknown and different.
