The "One Bread, One Cup" College Ministerial Internship Program is a summer program for college students. The internship offers young adults throughout North America an opportunity to participate and be formed in the Benedictine tradition.

During the internship, the students live in an intentional Christian community at a Roman Catholic monastery while studying and ministering at its seminary and school of theology. Interns serve as staff, catechists and theological reflection group leaders during the "One Bread, One Cup" Summer Conferences.

Interns participate in the daily liturgical life of the Roman Catholic Church and experience a balance of theory and practice in today's Church. Often, participants earn academic credit by completing a required internship or arranging for an independent study.
