This summer, Liberti is partnering with Aquinas Center to host an internship for undergraduates interested in urban ministry. Through this internship, we seek to engage college students in a multicultural experience with immigrants in South Philadelphia. Interns will also be discipled and mentored, as to help them grow in Christ and discern their gifts and calling. For more information, to read last year's intern blog, and to apply, just click here.
