JVC MAGIS Orientation 2012-2013: South House

One Day: Poverty, Privilege & Solidarity

This weekend, my community members and I spent 24 hours on retreat as part of the Jesuit Volunteer Corps Magis program through Loyola Chicago. Rooted in the values of spirituality, social justice, community, and simplicity that we all sought to foster as Jesuit Volunteers, our program allows us to continue living out the JVC mission as graduate students and interns at Catholic apostolates throughout Chicago.

Remember the UCA Martyrs: Speak out against violence and poverty

The UCA martyrs were targeted because they responded to God’s call to stand with the voiceless, the poor and the crucified in our world.
