Raymond Horchos

St. John Paul II Intern Fellow

Raymond​ worked this past 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.

His research as an intern was on the effects of parish closings and mergers on the political and social landscape of the Catholic Church in Belgium, Italy, and the United States. 

You can read Raymond's research presentation by clicking here.

Congratulations, Raymond, and thank you for working with the Institute this summer. All of us here at IPR wish you the very best in your continued studies at DeSales University in Pennsylvania.
