Melbourne Archdiocese has launched a new “Discipleship Internship” program for a small group of university students to grow in their faith and, in turn, encourage others to do the same. Source: Melbourne Catholic.
Over the next two years, these young adults from across Melbourne will journey with each other and, through prayer, formation and individual mentoring, grow in their relationship with the Lord.
Like those first disciples, they will then be sent out onto their university campuses and into the various youth and young adult ministries within the Archdiocese as heralds of the Gospel. Formed by their own encounter with the Lord, the students will help their peers into a deeper relationship with Christ.
Angella Francis, a parishioner of St Peter the Apostle Parish, Hoppers Crossing, is currently studying for a Bachelor of Science at the University of Melbourne. As a young adult leader in her parish, she successfully applied for the internship to grow in her faith and help others on their faith journey.
“This internship is such a blessing for me,” she says. “I’m so excited to learn how to truly be a disciple and share that with our campus and lovely parishes in Melbourne.”
