If you're currently in the middle of studying for/ taking finals, I'm praying for you.
If you're long past your final-taking days, please pray for us.
just hold on, we're going home...
I'll be working as a youth ministry intern at a parish near my house, which is super-duper exciting because this means that for the first summer since coming to college, I'll actually be able to 1) celebrate my birthday at home 2) see my friends from home 3) go to the pool (who am i kidding I hate the pool)... 4) attend young adult activities in my diocese 5) play with my nieces and nephews 6) watch my nieces' dance recital. So basically this is a Very Good Thing.
This internship is legit. It's with an amazing youth minister who is well-respected in the field, and I know I'll get a lot of good experience. He's giving me a lot of responsibility, which is daunting but will be very good for me.
I'm also currently in the process of trying to find a second job, both for income and to keep me busy. So if you hear of anything within 40 miles of DC, shoot me an email or a comment or a carrier pigeon!
To give you a sense of what this job is, basically I'll be responsible for organizing, preparing for, running, and taking down from all liturgically-related events next year. This includes orientation, parent's weekend, graduation, and the biggest one: Easter.
I've known for over a month that I'll have this job, and every week it gets more and more exciting and more and more daunting. This Easter, I really watched Jess, the current student head, and observed the jobs that she does. And I just kept thinking, "How on earth does she do it all?" I don't think I'll do half as good a job as she does, but I also am confident that I am doing what the Lord wants me to do, and that's all I can ask for, right?
