In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.
"When I started the transfer process to enter St. John Fisher College, I had intended to be an English major. After seeing an article about the internship program through the Religious Studies department, I sought out Fr. Costanzo to ask about that opportunity. Less than a week later I entered Fisher as a Religious Studies major. That internship program directly resulted in my current position as Ministry Staff Assistant at my parish. My job encompasses many areas, not the least of which is secretarial in nature; however, the essence of my role is to enable the Pastoral Team to devote more time to ministry and to the needs of parishioners. I have also had the chance to personally take part in many of the ministries, assisting with sacramental preparation programs, youth retreats, and the Parish School of Religion."
