Intern Insight – A Grateful Farewell

2017-08-21T11:30:05+00:00

When I began my summer internship at St. Anthony Shrine, I did not expect to forge such strong relationships as those I have within this community. As I prepare to head back to Boston College next week for my senior year, I leave behind not only a summer of exciting work experience, but friendships that

Intern Insight – Last Day at the Shrine

2017-08-04T09:16:34+00:00

It seems like only yesterday I was finding my way around the building and desperately trying to remember all of the information I had been told on orientation day. Since then, I have really enjoyed discovering some of the many special aspects of the Shrine. One part of my internship was devoted to working up

I met Br. Juan de la Cruz Turcios on my first day at Saint Anthony Shrine. He was very memorable among the many people I met that day because he started dancing after we were all introduced. I didn’t realize it then but this is pretty normal occurrence for Br. Juan. If you have seen

Intern Insight – A Busy Week at the Shrine

2017-07-13T09:00:57+00:00

There is a constant flow of activity at the Shrine. Yet again, I have found that it is very difficult to choose one topic to write about in my biweekly blog post as there have been so many noteworthy moments. The following are just a few of of the events from past weeks. Saint Anthony Shrine

Intern Insights – A Lesson Learned

2017-06-21T10:29:26+00:00

During these past four weeks at Saint Anthony Shrine, I have had a plethora of wonderful experiences very worthy of sharing in my Intern Insight post. As Christians, we are taught to love and serve those who are in need. Saint Paul wrote: “Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good.

Intern Insights – A Reflection on the Feast of St. Anthony

2017-06-15T16:03:15+00:00

While I have been thoroughly enjoying my time at the Shrine thus far, Tuesday, June 13th was absolutely the best day I have spent here this summer. As it was the Feast of St. Anthony, I spent the morning in the lobby of the Shrine, greeting visitors, handing out blessed bread, and taking donations. Given

Intern Insight – Getting Acclimated at the Shrine

2017-06-02T09:53:22+00:00

On my first day at the Shrine, I was unsure what to expect from this experience. I had become familiarized with the Shrine, but I truly did not understand all that it meant to the people it serves. To people across the Boston area, St. Anthony Shrine is a family, offering religious events and opportunities for
