It has always been part of the Church’s mission to encourage Catholics to follow a vocation to serve in public life. The quality of decisions made in civil society depends on the moral and spiritual formation of those who occupy leadership roles.

The role is varied, and involves a range of work, including researching and writing parliamentary questions and briefings, composing parliamentary and constituency correspondence, and writing speeches and articles.

Although all of our interns are Catholic, we work with politicians from any Christian denomination. The scheme is cross-party and we place interns with different politicians each year.

The internship has been fascinating, and provided me with an amazing insight into the world of politics. It has been a highly valuable experience to witness first-hand the processes and work behind a Bill in parliament. The internship reinforced to us all the need for Catholic voices in politics, so that we may spread the Gospel in the work we do.
