From the National Office 

Greetings, April 2010

The community of IVC wishes you the joy of "all things possible" because of Easter!  


Today on Easter Monday we celebrate the reality that because of God’s love, revealed in the risen Christ, everyday holds the promise that we are able to transcend boundaries, overcome limits and be of new life.   Because of Easter we live in the realm of hope and possibility.


In that spirit the entire community of IVC, through the direct service of our volunteers to hundreds, if not thousands of people, manifests God’s love to those whose lives have faced burdens and painful limitation.  Whether you are a volunteer, donor, staff person, board member or agency partner, your part in the IVC mission brings forth new life in hope and healing each and everyday. 


May God continue to bless you and your ministry through IVC and may this Easter season be one that is filled with the joy of the risen Christ and a new creation.


Meet IVC's New Executive Director Mary McGinnity

Mary McGinnity

I'd like to take this opportunity to introduce myself.  I am honored to be the new Executive Director for IVC as of January 11, 2010.  After many years of dedicated and extraordinary service, Suzanne Geaney, the previous Executive Director, decided to enter a time of renewal and the pursuit of new enterprises. I'm thrilled to have this opportunity to lead and serve IVC along with a talented staff and deeply dedicated Board of Directors. Having served IVC in various capacities over the past several years, I am excited to be a part of such a valuable and dynamic organization that makes a tremendous difference in the lives of so many.  This amazing organization truly brings the heart of the Gospel and the best of the Jesuit tradition of service to others to life each day.
