YOUR MOST IMPORTANT WORK MAY BEGIN AFTER YOU RETIRE
The Ignatian Volunteer Corps provides semiretired and retired adults age 50 and over the opportunity to volunteer two days a week from mid September through mid June serving the needs of people who are economically impoverished at nonprofit schools and agencies in the local community. Ignatian Volunteers work for a more just society and to grow deeper in Christian faith by reflecting and praying on a monthly basis with other volunteers in the Jesuit tradition in addition to other spiritual formation opportunities including retreats and spiritual direction.
Information sessions will be scheduled for the upcoming season after Labor Day. This will be an opportunity to meet several Xavier parishioners currently serving in the New York City IVC chapter and explore God’s call to grow spiritually through sharing time and talent with those in need of assistance including children, teens, the elderly, new immigrants, and many others experiencing economic and social hardship. We look forward to talking with you!
