Job Opportunity: IVC – Baltimore Is Hiring a Regional Director
The Ignatian Volunteer Corps (IVC) in Baltimore is looking to hire a full-time regional director to manage and grow the office. IVC matches seasoned professionals with charities and nonprofits seeking skilled volunteers.
IVC is a national nonprofit service organization that provides men and women aged 50 and over with opportunities to serve the poor and marginalized, grow deeper in their faith and transform lives. By contributing leadership skills and life experience into service, IVC volunteers strengthen their communities, create a more just society and bring hope to people seeking to overcome poverty, marginalization, illness and disabilities.
This mission is implemented directly through the efforts of regional offices managed by regional directors with guidance, support and supervision from the IVC national office. The IVC regional director reports to the IVC National Director of Program Operations and Regional Development. The regional director also maintains a strong, on-going relationship with the Regional Advisory Council by sharing timely, on-going information, planning the region’s work effort and seeking advice for the best ways to implement IVC regional programs and goals consistent with the National Strategic Framework.
Applications will be accepted through June 28, 2019.

May 14, 2020 – An online mini-retreat at Pentecost for Ignatian spiritual directors, happening on May 28, 2020. This retreat is an opportunity for spiritual directors to reflect on how the pandemic experience has been affecting you and your ministry.
While life has always been marked by change and loss, nothing could have prepared us for the sudden loss of “life as we know it” and the suffering that we have witnessed recently. In this live online program, Nicholas Collura, M.Div., will consider experiences of grief in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic.
These 40 days of Lent are an opportunity to deepen our spiritual lives and, as St. Ignatian would say in the Exercises, “to reflect and to take advantage” of the richness of the readings that we will hear. Watch these short video reflections on the Sunday Gospels.
