Visitation Sisters announce yearlong volunteer program for young adults

| March 2, 2011 | 0 Comments

The Visitation Sisters of Min­nea­polis are launching the Visitation In­tern­ship Program to provide an opportunity for young adults to live in community in north Minnea­po­lis with other young adults and ministers in the neighborhood for one year.

North Minneapolis is an economically challenged area of the Twin Cities, and the Visitation Sisters are working to create a prayerful presence in the neighborhood.

Women and men between the ages of 20 and 35 are eligible to ap­ply to the program, according to a press release from Visitation Monas­tery.

The interns will live in an intentional VIP community and commit to community nights once a week with their house and also with the sisters on a regular basis.

The interns will serve in a ministry within the north Minneapolis community. They will learn Salesian spirituality through the Visitation Sisters, Visitation Companions, north side neighbors, and through study and retreat opportunities.

They also will be offered spiritual direction, vocational discernment and prayer opportunities through the Visitation Sisters.

Applications are currently being accepted for the inaugural year be­gin­ning in August.
