Greetings Friend, Summer 2009

  IVC Chicago 

The Chicago region opened in 2001 and has been a strong Ignatian presence in the metro area ever since. There are currently 44 active IVC Volunteers serving in a wide variety of service agencies and schools. 

All the IVC Volunteers truly embrace the Ignatian attitude of service and availability. This includes being open to opportunities to spread their spirituality and promote the faith and values of the Society of Jesus.

As part of their community monthly meetings, George Sullivan, Regional Director, often reviews Ignatian prayers. One month he introduced one of the key practices, the Examen. Read on to see how the Ignatian spirit of openness and service prompted a group of IVC Volunteers to provide the Examen for Spanish-speakers.
