St. Ignatius Church and IVC host Evening of Gratitude

December 2, 2014 - On December 1st, the Ignatian Volunteer Corps and St. Ignatius Church in Baltimore hosted an Advent Evening of Gratitude for Baltimore area volunteers. Vincent Marchionni, SJ, a teacher at Cristo Rey Baltimore, opened and closed the evening with prayers, Louise Wright offered a reflection as a volunteer and Msgr John Fitzgerald spoke on the “Apostleship of the Sea”. The Select Choir of the Institute of Notre Dame, under the director of Daniel Meyer, treated the audience to a medley of Advent songs. 

The Ignatian Volunteer Corps provides men and women, most age 50 or better, opportunities to serve others through a network of community partner organizations. Volunteers are strengthened in their Christian faith by IVC’s unique spiritual reflection program which is rooted in the Jesuit tradition of Ignatian spirituality. IVC started in Baltimore twenty years ago and is now in 19 cities across the country.
