My Life As An Intern At Catholic Charities By Stacy Sprewer

Stacy SpewerI have never felt as welcome in a work environment as I have at Catholic Charities. When I first began my internship, I was excited and nervous. As someone who does not practice the Catholic faith, I felt a sense of worry that I would not fit in well at the office. However, I was greeted with smiling faces and genuine compassion that dissolved my nerves and put me at ease. The kind-heartedness of my co-workers gave me the vitality to work hard. Each day I have spent at the organization has been inspiring.

This year I had the pleasure of being involved in the planning and execution of the 2014 St. Patrick’s Day Gala, Catholic Charities’ premier fundraising event. The combined efforts and passion of the staff in carrying out such a momentous occasion is truly inspirational. Bearing witness to the extended hours, tedious tasking, and overall enthusiasm of the staff, it became clear how passionate Catholic Charities’ personnel are about their work. I was also moved by the overwhelming support of the community in their attendance at this charity event. It is clear that Catholic Charities lives up to their reputation for compassion within the Rocky Mountain Region.

As my internship comes to an end, I look forward to carrying my experience with Catholic Charities on to help me with any challenges I may encounter in the future. This internship has taught me valuable skills in event planning, research, graphic design, and general communication practices. Most importantly, I have been so fortunate to develop within an organization that promotes generosity and sincerity in every individual that they touch!
