Campus Ministry Internships
Campus Ministry Mission Statement:
“Campus Ministry at Canisius College is missioned to empower our students, faculty, administrators, staff and alumni to engage the world in order to find and manifest God within our environment, society, communities and Church. We seek to help others discern their gifts and grow as leaders so as to become women and men with and for others. We do this in the spirit of Jesus and the Jesuit tradition and are committed to work toward justice with people of all backgrounds.”
Canisius College Spiritual Interns work collectively to coordinate and engage other students' involvement in spiritual events for the campus community. This includes but is not limited to: our retreat offerings, liturgy, the 4th Day Experience, student evenings of reflection, interfaith initiatives and special liturgical services.
The Canisius College Justice Interns work as liaisons between the Office of Campus Ministry and the campus community. The Justice Interns will primarily work to educate the campus community and themselves on the social justice and peace issues that affect the campus and Buffalo community as well as national and international issues. Student interns will have the opportunity to use their own interests and backgrounds to educate others as well as learn about new justice issues and areas.
Canisius for Buffalo Service Interns work as student liaisons between a particular community partner agency and the Canisius College community. Direct community service enhances and enriches the Canisius educational experience; it also helps students develop valuable relationships, career, leadership, and social skills. Current Community Service Internship placements include organizing our weekly Sunday Sandwich and Spirituality Ministry and our monthly Burrito Project. Students also organize volunteers for St Luke's Mission of Mercy, South Buffalo Community Table, Habitat for Humanity and Meals on Wheels. Student interns will have the opportunity to use their own interest and backgrounds to help educate others as well as learn new justice issues and areas.
