Catholic Charities USA (CCUSA) is partnering with Bethlehem University, a Catholic university located in the Holy Land, to sponsor a select group of students to spend the summer learning and serving with Catholic Charities agencies across America.
Eight Palestinian students underwent a one-week orientation at CCUSA before spending the next six weeks working at local Catholic Charities agencies across the country.
“This internship program is an opportunity to students to engage with the mission of the Catholic Church and apply it to the real-world challenges facing so many,” said Father Larry Snyder, president of CCUSA. “We hope they will take these life-altering experiences and stories back to Palestine and call others to meet the needs of their community.”
