Isle of Wight monastery offers spiritual internships

In this fast-paced world, rife with distractions, there's an opportunity for religious young people to "establish a lasting spiritual foundation" for their lives.

An eight-week monastic internship is available to 18 to 25-year-olds at Quarr Abbey, a Catholic Benedictine Monastery on the Isle of Wight.

Josh Caminiti, a 23-year-old from Canada, who is about to start a new job as a business consultant in London, took part in the programme and told the BBC about his experience.
