Faith in Politics is a Catholic Parliamentary and Public Affairs internship scheme
The scheme uniquely offers a foundation of Catholic faith and spiritual formation for those who believe they may have a vocation to public service in politics or public affairs.
Interns commit to a varied year exploring the political landscape and the Church’s involvement in social action. This occurs first and foremost in their work placements with Members of Parliament and CAFOD, the Church’s overseas aid agency.
Two possible internship streams
An internship with Faith in Politics involves working either in the office of a Member or Parliament or in the public affairs office at CAFOD, the overseas aid agency of the Catholic Church in England and Wales.
What is unique about the Catholic Bishops’ Conference internship is how faith becomes an integral part of daily life, rather than an additional aspect to it.
