Volunteers Open Evening: London
London Jesuit Volunteers enables a “Faith that does Justice” through supporting volunteers for 2+ hours per week as they work with the poor and marginalised in London. It is based on individuals' own availability, location and social justice priorities.
As Jesuit spirituality is about being a contemplative in action, volunteers also commit to attending a monthly reflection session with Ignatian input and sharing on their experience with other volunteers.
They are holding an open evening where you will have a chance to talk with current volunteers. Please come on Wednesday 15th March 2016- pop in anytime from 6.30-8pm. Please let us know that you are hoping to come by email – email@example.com or telephone 020 7495 1673.
John has been visiting detainees on a weekly basis for the past few months. He spends about three hours listening to their often very complex stories, and concerns for the future.
“The monthly reflection evenings with other volunteers, where we have a reflective input and small group sharing, have provided me with mutual support and also a focus to see difficult situations in a new light.”
Being a London Jesuit Volunteer involves:
• Action and Contemplation
• An Opportunity to grow in your faith and prayer life
• A place to see justice in action
