Molalla Retreat


JVC Northwest is hosting a retreat for former volunteers of all service programs focusing on discernment, self-care, community, and vocation, led by facilitators Jack Kennedy and Sara Jones. Registration has been extended through June 7.

Jack Kennedy is a former Jesuit Catholic priest who now works as a full-time Spiritual Director to clients and friends across generations and the religious spectrum. Jack’s work has been deeply informed by the Ignatian spirituality he was immersed in as a priest, but is also grounded in the wisdom of several religious traditions and cosmology.


Sara Jones is a former Lutheran Volunteer and Peace Corps volunteer who explored several career paths for over 10 years before becoming a certified professional coach that works specifically with former volunteers to, in her words, “help other former volunteers reignite themselves after their service commitments to create their next empowered chapters.”


Attendees can expect a relaxed environment among former JVs and participants from other service corps who are looking for ways to cultivate and continue living out their values professionally, personally, and spiritually.


  • Please arrive between 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. Friday night.
  • For those flying it is recommended to fly into Portland International Airport.
  • The cost for this weekend retreat is only $50 and covers the cost of food and lodging.
