Hey all. My name is Jennifer, and I’m a senior at the University of the Incarnate Word. For the past year, I’ve been working under Campus Ministry as a Peer Minister. My job has been to be the worship leader and coordinator of the interdenominational worship service at the university. Our worship service includes praise and worship, scripture readings, a student speaker, and “interdenominational” communion. Which we know is still Protestant communion. The preacher in charge is a non denominational preacher. He “does” the communion.
As a Catholic, I can’t take the communion, even though I’m the one putting the service together. I has been really interesting to work with protestants. Its sort of great because most of them didn’t even knew Catholics were Christians until I came along, so its been a really great opportunity to be an example and defender of the Catholic faith.
Anyway, I was re-hired for my position again for the upcoming fall. And i was just wondering… is it wrong for me to have this position? :shrug: This position was intended to go to someone who is going into ministry. The whole thing is supposed to prepare those who want to go into ministry. And i do want to go into ministry, but Catholic ministry. Am i taking away a protestant’s opportunity? Or maybe God put me here to be a light and an example to Protestants. Anyway, the Protestant preacher guy is fine with it. He’s actually more Catholic than most Catholics I know. He’s just afraid to convert because of family and social issues. So maybe God put us both here to shed some light on some touchy issues between Catholics and Protestants?
What do you guys think?:shrug:
