One of the most memorable experiences for me was when we went to the National Catholic Youth Conference as a team. I never gone to a conference like this before, so it was amazing to see all these people celebrating being Catholic, praying, and worshiping together. One night specifically was powerful when we had adoration and 25,000 people were completely silent. Along with the amazing music provided by Matt Maher, that night was incredibly powerful for me and I would not have been able to go if it were not for my internship at JSC.
I am a graduate of Saint Michael’s College in Vermont with a BA in Religious Studies. While at St. Mike’s, I got involved in campus ministry and discovered a love of the community that faith creates. In order to get more involved in leading ministry, I pursued my masters at the University of Dayton. I recently graduated from UD with a Masters of Arts with a concentration in pastoral ministry. I feel incredibly blessed to be a NEXT Intern for the 2015-2016 year. I am eager to gain more experience in ministry and to have a chance to learn more about where God is calling me while being apart of the youth team. View all posts by Samantha White
