Spiritual Accompaniment Internship

Spanish Speaking Companions

Spiritual Accompaniment Internship Program

NOTE: Applications for 2022-2023 have been closed.

Mercy Center receives many requests for Spanish-speaking spiritual companions which we are unable to accommodate because of the lack of Spanish speaking companions. This program is designed to respond to this under-served community.

This program is the first-of-its-kind in our area. This is a two-year program which will be offered in English for English-as-a-second-language participants to be trained as spiritual companions. Following the first 2-year cycle, our goal is to offer a second 2-year program to train qualified candidates to teach a spiritual accompaniment program in Spanish.

This program is co-sponsored by Mercy Center Burlingame Institute for Spiritual Direction and Marist Brother, Don Bisson, who has been training non-English speaking communities across the United States.
