Service Trips & Events
APPALACHIA SERVICE PROJECT
Cardinal Spellman has been committed to serving with ASP for many years now. All students, with freshman and sophomores having priority, are invited to apply for ASP. Every June, Spellman takes over 100 participants (students and chaperones) to West Virginia to make homes “warmer, safer and drier.” An objective of this trip is to foster an awareness of each student’s personal worth and dignity and develop an appreciation of and respect for the differences and diversity of others. Through this service trip, students will have an opportunity to fulfill this objective by “accepting people right where they are, just the way they are,” the philosophy of service of A.S.P.

INTERNATIONAL MISSION TRIP
Cardinal Spellman has committed itself to serving our world and what greater way to do that then participating in an international mission trip. Juniors and Seniors are invited to apply each year to attend our mission trip. Spellman has been working with Mustard Seed Communities for over 7 years, which serves children and adults with mental and physical disabilities who have been abandoned. Our goal is to serve the residents by sharing our love and companionship. Our group shares our faith and love with these children while also completing work projects to improve the places where they live, learn and grow. Since many of the residents at Mustard Seed Communities will never get the chance to see the world, we will bring the world to them. We have traveled to Jamaica and Nicaragua with Mustard Seed. And Spellman has also traveled to Ecuador with Family Missions Company. For further information on our mission trips, please click here.
MARCH FOR LIFE
Every January, Spellman is proud to take the largest group in the Archdiocese of Boston to Washington, D.C. for the annual March for Life. Nearly 200 of our students and chaperones travel by coach bus to our nation’s capital. This three-day trip is part of an interdisciplinary approach to applied learning in the history and theology departments as the students experience what it is like to participate in one of the fundamental American experiences, the right to peaceful assembly in protest of policy or law. The trip includes visits to our nation's greatest monuments and museums. Our students have found this experience to be both educational and spiritual as well as rewarding.
