Job Opportunity: IVC – Baltimore Is Hiring a Regional Director
The Ignatian Volunteer Corps (IVC) in Baltimore is looking to hire a full-time regional director to manage and grow the office. IVC matches seasoned professionals with charities and nonprofits seeking skilled volunteers.
IVC is a national nonprofit service organization that provides men and women aged 50 and over with opportunities to serve the poor and marginalized, grow deeper in their faith and transform lives. By contributing leadership skills and life experience into service, IVC volunteers strengthen their communities, create a more just society and bring hope to people seeking to overcome poverty, marginalization, illness and disabilities.
This mission is implemented directly through the efforts of regional offices managed by regional directors with guidance, support and supervision from the IVC national office. The IVC regional director reports to the IVC National Director of Program Operations and Regional Development. The regional director also maintains a strong, on-going relationship with the Regional Advisory Council by sharing timely, on-going information, planning the region’s work effort and seeking advice for the best ways to implement IVC regional programs and goals consistent with the National Strategic Framework.
Applications will be accepted through June 28, 2019.

July 1, 2019 – More than 125 spiritual directors attended our Symposium for Ignatian Spiritual Directors last Thursday through Saturday at Fordham University. Thank you to everyone participated in this wonderful event!
June 10, 2019 – In February, the Society of Jesus announced four Universal Apostolic Preferences. These Preferences—promoting discernment and the Spiritual Exercises, walking with the excluded, caring for our common home, and journeying with youth—will guide the global mission of the Jesuits for the next decade. While the Preferences are not exactly ranked, it seems appropriate that the Spiritual Exercises should come first.
June 6, 2019 – This month Pope Francis is asking us to pray for priests. "Let us be thankful for their example and testimony," said Pope Francis. "Let us pray that priests, through the modesty and humility of their lives, commit themselves actively, above all, to solidarity with those who are most poor."
May 7, 2019 – In his most recent monthly prayer video, Pope Francis spoke on his May intention: The Church in Africa. "Let us pray this month that the Church in Africa, through the commitment of its members, may be the seed of unity among her peoples and a sign of hope for this continent."
21 de abril de 2019 – DESTROZADOS, APLASTADOS, ROTOS… Todas nuestras suposiciones, nuestros prejuicios, nuestras confusiones y desesperanzas, todos nuestros pecados dispersos por el suelo. Esparcidos como si una ametralladora hubiese explotado afuera de una tumba vacía.
12 de Abril de 2019 — Este año celebré mi cumpleaños el mismo día que Silvia*, una mujer hospedada en nuestro hogar de acogida en Nogales, Sonora, Méjico. Cuando llegué al hogar, las paredes y las ventanas estaban adornadas con globos, pancartas y decoraciones. La Hermana Alicia, directora del hogar, distribuyó botellas de coca cola y un gran pastel de chocolate para compartir. Junto con las otras mujeres y niños, y también con un grupo que nos visitaba desde California, cantamos, nos reímos, jugamos y nos dimos abrazos de cumpleaños.
