Hi my name is Regis, I’m a third-year student in Biochemistry and Environmental Studies. This is my fifth semester with Saint Monica Saint George, and I am absolutely thrilled with the idea of being and intern this year with our campus ministry of the Newman center! I can guarantee you that your stay here will be amazing, and most of all purposeful. I can’t wait to meet you all!

Hello! My name is Sylvia Mattingly, and I beginning my second year at the University of Cincinnati. I am studying Graphic Communication Design in the College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning. I am the oldest in my family, and I have four brothers and two sisters. I am passionate about art, movies, nature, and especially being Catholic. Cooking and taking care of my plants are my favorite hobbies. I am very excited to be an intern at St. Monica-St. George for the 2017-2018 school year, and can’t wait to meet you!

Interns work along side the campus ministers to serve the needs of the Catholic students at the University of Cincinnati.

Interns live together in community in a house with Fr. Al (Fr. Al lives on the first floor, the interns on the second and third floors).

There are opportunities for shared prayer, meals, and common life.

In addition to meeting with a campus minister to discuss ministry goals and community, interns meet with a mentor throughout the year.

The purpose of the internship program is to involve students in a more deliberate way in campus and parish ministry to:

* introduce students to lay ministry

* deepen involvement in Church

* develop leadership skills

* enhance peer ministry

* experience Christian community living

Interns help to represent St. Monica-St. George on the UC campus, to the parish at large, and to the rest of the student community.

They are not only ministers to their peers; they are leaders who guide and offer support to the whole student group.
