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.

Oscars – Got Solidarity?

As households across the country prepare to watch stars strut down the red carpet at the Oscars tonight, we thought it was appropriate to remember a few films that have inspired new understandings of solidarity with our brothers and sisters throughout the world.
