Mother Teresa House supports numerous internships at many universities including those for students - of various colleges and majors -- at Michigan State University in which they are given a rich service learning experience in providing care for terminally ill people. Another example is a summer program, with University of Notre Dame, which has provided many students the opportunity to address social issues on the frontline.
Junior, University of Notre Dame Summer of 2009
When I read about Mother Teresa House, I knew that this was the place that I wanted to spend my summer in service to others. I didn’t know much about hospice, or caring for anyone but myself, but there was something that struck me. It gave me the opportunity to have hands-on experience caring for, and entering into genuine relationships with those that I would encounter at the house. It also allowed me to explore an often-overlooked tenant of Catholic social thought– the dignity of life through natural death.
Looking back on my eight weeks, I cannot help but be in awe of how the presence of God has worked through Mother Teresa House.
