an ending with a beginning.

Last night we had the missioning liturgy at camp.  Joseph Carver, SJ led a beautiful service with thoughtful words from second year JV, Danielle, and moving blessings by all of the Area Directors on staff.  The music was so uplifting that the evening ended in dancing with spirited well wishes for all of the JVs embarking upon their new journeys.  What a wonderful group of Volunteers the ’09-’10 JVs are.  They will do great work in the year ahead as they touch many lives throughout the Northwest. 

A big thanks to all of those at camp who made this week happen!  It was memorable for all.

PS.  Check back periodically – more updates on this Jesuit Volunteer year will be available in the near future!
