St. Ignatius's Vision of Community

Wednesday, May 27, 2020
12:30 - 1:00 p.m. EDT

The Jesuit practice of Community is well established -- Jesuits live in community, work in community, and worship in community. They share their mission of academic community, global community, and service through community with the Jesuit Volunteer Corps and Ignatian Volunteer Corps. We are each called to be a part of the small "c" catholic community as well as capital "C" Catholic community.
