Is there someone in your life who has inspired you? Perhaps someone who has opened up a new perspective or new ideas? Perhaps it’s someone who has done something you find remarkable.
Being inspired lifts the heart and mind with hope of new possibilities, helps us to stretch ourselves, to become more. When you have been inspired by someone, that person has given you a gift.
This month, we share a very special story of two people who inspired one another to service. This pair is a mother and daughter. We couldn’t think of a better way to share an IVC service story and honor Mother’s Day. We also are delighted that this pair serve in the two sister Ignatian service corps – the Ignatian Volunteer Corps and the Jesuit Volunteer Corps – with both generations living out St. Ignatius’ call to be men and women for others. We hope they inspire you to the gift of service.
Thank you for all you do to support the work of the men and women of IVC. And Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers and all women who nurture the best in others!
