Expressing Our Gratitude for You

Posted by .

Mass of Gratitude

Greetings to our IVC Community,

We express our deepest gratitude to you for the many ways you support IVC.  Thank you for sharing your time, talent and treasure with us!

We celebrate our national community with a spirit of abundant gratitude.  We will pray for you during a special IVC Mass of Gratitude this Friday, November 21, celebrated by Fr. Tim Kesicki, SJ, President of the US Jesuit Conference .

Fr. Kesicki will offer this Mass for the IVC Community and your intentions.  We invite you to  submit your prayer requests as a blog comment here or by sending an email to by Thursday.  We will pray for your intentions individually and place them at the altar  for prayer at the Mass of Gratitude.

We welcome this opportunity to unite our hearts and join together in prayer.  May this month of thanksgiving give us the opportunity to express our gratitude for all that we have been given  and to re-commit ourselves to selfless generosity, service to others and the healing of our human family.

With sincere gratitude,

Mary C. McGinnity
IVC National Executive Director

    Please pray for my sons and their young families. A new grandchild will be born in January and my daughter-in-law had a difficult birth with their first child with an alarming infection afterwards. Please pray for her and pray that the upcoming delivery will be uneventful and that she and the little girl stay healthy.


    Please pray for the soul of Joseph Callahan and Anne Callahan. Also for a special intention.

    Please pray for Christians who are persecuted around the world, for families who are separated from their loved ones, for those who carry personal burdens or sorrows, and for our country that the Holy Spirit may guide with mercy and compassion.
