The Campus Ministry Internship (CMI) is a paid internship opportunity available to Creighton University students of at least Junior standing. CMI invites our participating students into a comprehensive experience of intellectual, spiritual and practical growth in learning about theology, spirituality and pastoral ministry. The internship is designed to deepen a student’s integration of academic work, service, and faith development within the context of the University.
Campus Ministry offers three new and engaging internship opportunities for 2013-14! Each internship calls upon our students to make use of their specific gifts, reach beyond their lived experience and grow as women and men for and with others.
In addition to the internships below, all three interns will share several collaborative experiences and projects, such as the “Finding God in All Things” retreat, hospitality events, liturgies, and days of reflection and prayer gatherings with the Campus Ministry staff.
Justice Walking Internship
Justice Walking is a comprehensive, faith-based program that invites students to grow in the spirituality of justice as they journey together throughout the academic year. The program invites students to go deeper in their faith and explore social justice through experience, education, based on Catholic Social Teaching, and reflective understanding.
Our topic for the 2013-14 year will be human rights and our service component will be hospice.
