Summer 2013 will see 10 Bethlehem University students (a record high number!) in California, Ohio, Iowa, Wisconsin, Washington DC, Arizona, Kansas, Illinois, and Washington state for a six-week McGuckin Mentoring and Internship Program

Catholic Charities USA and Georgetown University generously and graciously made arrangements for both the work placement sites as well as for the housing accommodations for these 10 students.

Established in 2010 in honor of a former Lieutenant of the USA Northwestern Lieutenancy of the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem (EOHSJ), this year’s program is supported by gifts from the Grand Magesterium in the Vatican, USA Northwestern Lieutenancy, the Canadian Atlantic Lieutenancy, CNEWA-USA, CNEWA-Canada, Pontifical Mission for Palestine, the Italian Ministry for Youth, and a number of private donors, including Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Tan of Vancouver, Canada.

The McGuckin student interns are sharing their experiences this summer through a blog – posting about their internship experience, sharing photos and stories of their host families, and reflecting on local events and cultural experiences. Please visit the blog, which is updated twice weekly: Check back for information about local events with McGuckin student interns in your area!
