IRSS JA 2018-081: Parish Immersion as Religious Education Service Learning Experience in a Philippine Catholic University

Effective learning comes from experiential education that allows students to progress from experience, reflection, conceptualization to the application. This concept is anchored in the Kolbian Experiential Learning Theory which states that students can acquire and enhance their knowledge, skills, and attitudes from their engagement in activities outside of the classroom or school. Using a descriptive-comparative research design, this paper examined the level of engagement and performance of college students in the parish immersion and the lessons they gained from the services they had rendered. The study covered 300 college students from a Catholic university in the Philippines, and the data were collected using self-administered questionnaires. These were distributed to and accomplished by students and their respective parish immersion coordinators who assessed their performance. The significant findings of the study reveal that the students demonstrated a very high level of engagement and overall performance of their assigned tasks or activities. In fact, no significant difference was noted in the self-assessment of the level of engagement and performance of students compared with the assessment of their parish immersion coordinators. The parish immersion of students revolved around religious, educational, social and environmental activities. The lessons they learned were aligned with the core values of the immersion program such as spirituality, service, community life, moral integrity, and education. The findings were utilized in the enhancement of the parish immersion program of the university
