Catholic Charities Partners with Bethlehem University

News released by Catholic Charities USA at the top of July:

“To those who suffer, God does not provide arguments which explain everything; rather, his response is that of an accom-panying presence, a history of goodness which touches every story of suffering and opens up a ray of light.”
- Pope Francis

Catholic Charities USA Launches Internship Program with Bethlehem University
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.”
