The Institute for Policy Research and Catholic Studies is pleased to announce that Raymond Horchos will be joining the Institute this summer as the first St. John Paul II Fellow.
Raymond is working this summer with the Institute while participating in an academic intern program on international affairs and public policy through The Fund for American Studies (TFAS) in Washington, D.C.
He will be researching the effects of parish closings and mergers on the political and social landscape of the Catholic Church in the United States.
Raymond is a rising senior at DeSales University, where he is pursuing a degree in Political Science, and previously interned for the Vatican in the Pontifical Council of Culture.
Welcome aboard, Raymond!
