Dear Pastors & Parish Leaders:
We are always eager to welcome new Ignatian Volunteers into our community- to grow our impact in the lives of people experiencing poverty! Beyond personally inviting people of retirement age in your parish to consider IVC Baltimore, we ask that you broadly extend an invitation via your parish website, bulletin, and social media channels. Sometimes, all someone needs is a little nudge- to respond to the “still small voice” (1 Kings 19) that calls us forth to act boldly and love differently!
Truly, thank you for your support.
** During COVID-19, there are numerous “work from home” options available!**
4x a year, please insert the below blurb (or one of many more we have drafted) into your parish bulletin!
Your Most Important WORK May Begin AFTER You Retire
Are you retired or finished raising your family? Do you want to give back, enrich your spiritual life, and build community with other mature adults? Consider joining the Ignatian Volunteer Corps in Baltimore. Our community of Ignatian Volunteers serve one or two days per week (September through June) in local non-profit agencies that assist people in poverty and meet monthly for prayer and shared reflection in the Ignatian tradition. **During COVID-19, there are numerous “work from home” options for service.** To learn more, visit our website (ivcusa.org/baltimore) or email (Baltimore@ivcusa.org).
Download, copy, and post this flyer to your parish’s bulletin boards.
