FJV and Friends Virtual Retreat

Value Renewal: Reinvigorating our heart’s longings

Sunday, April 24, 2022

10 AM - 1 PM PDT / 1 PM - 4 PM EDT

After two years of immense change, unrest, and adaptation to a new normal in ways we’ve never experienced, there is no better time to re-engage with the four values of JVC Northwest. Guided by Ignatian spirituality, we will reflect on some important questions: How has your connection to the values evolved? What has shifted in your heart? What do you long for now? Afterward, there will be a chance to turn this reflection into action and hear about new opportunities for engagement with JVC Northwest. Join fellow Former JVs, JV EnCorps members, and friends to do some spiritual spring cleaning and prepare our hearts for the next loving thing – together. 

There is no cost to participate in this event, though if you would like to make a gift to help fund future programming and support the service of JVs and JV EnCorps members, please use the donation form below. We appreciate your support!
