    June 17-25th, 2006 will be the next installment of the Bapchule Bound mission trip to the St. Peter’s Indian Mission in Bapchule, AZ. Mark your calendars now ladies and gentlemen.

  • bapchule bound 2005: virtues

    The Bapchule Bound mission experience, unlike the University Catholic Center’s Mission Trip to Arteaga, Mexico, focuses virtually all efforts onto pastoral work with the community.
