Papal Mass in Washington DC


Papal Mass in Washtington D.C.

On September 23, 2015, Nancy, Mary Frances, and Pat were Papal Mass Volunteers at the Mass of Canonization with Pope Francis. The three had met through the Ignatian Volunteer Corps (IVC), which provided volunteers for that glorious day. IVC seeks to give mature men and women the opportunity to serve the needs of people who are poor, to work for a more just society, and to grow deeper in Christian faith by reflecting and praying in the Ignatian tradition. Nancy, Mary Frances and Pat have been with IVC for several years.
