Are you called to serve God more fully? Do you desire to be in community with others? Are you willing to give of your time, comfort, and energy? Then Ignatian Volunteer Corps is for you. IVC Denver began in September 2017 with 8 volunteers. We now have 22 volunteers serving across the greater Denver region. The heart of this program is service. Each volunteer serves 1-2 days a week at a local nonprofit agency. We aim to serve Christ in serving one another. Coming together as a community each month, we pray and reflect using the tools of St. Ignatius and the volunteer’s unique experiences at the work site. In addition, the volunteers meet one-on-one with a spiritual reflector to more fully examine their service experience, seeing God in both the good times and the difficult ones. The combination of service with this reflection allows volunteers to nourish their own souls while caring for others. We are the living church, serving the local community while nurturing one another on the journey. Please consider joining us today!
While volunteers are central to Ignatian Volunteer Corps, there are various other ways to help support our organization. Perhaps you could serve as a spiritual reflector for a volunteer. Maybe you run a nonprofit in the Denver area and would like an IVC member at your organization. There are many ways to connect with IVC Denver, please do not hesitate to contact the local Director, Erin Benson, with your ideas, concerns, or interests!
