PBS Video Shows the Impact of the Jesuit Volunteer Corps
Jesuit Volunteer Corps is celebrating its 60th anniversary this year. It
is one of a number of denomination- and church-related service organizations
that gives young college graduates a chance to change their lives by living
simply in community with one another and by serving those in need. PBS
Correspondent Deborah Potter reports on one JVC group in Scranton,
Pennsylvania, where the volunteers describe how their experience of life
together and work with those who are poor, sick, or hungry has affected them.
“I see the presence of God in all of my clients so profoundly,” says one
volunteer. “You’re told that you have Christ inside us, but I never actually
saw it until I came here.”
January 6, 2020 — For several days in late December, approximately 60 Jesuits in formation – from novices to those who have been preparing for priesthood for more than a decade -- gathered in the desert.
We strive to promote justice, enhance faith, and find God in all things.
We welcome partners in mission who wish to volunteer at our ministries or learn more about Ignatian spirituality.
Your support makes it possible for us to continue our ministries of education and service to all of God’s people, especially the poor.
