The ISC is dedicated to providing resources that assist people to serve Christ's mission of compassion, healing, and justice. In this spirit, we offer direct service programs and Ignatian spirituality opportunities to individuals and communities that might otherwise be underserved; and spiritual support for those who work or volunteer in the margins.

We collaborate with communities in the margins seeking our partnership by:

  • Listening to their desires
  • Appreciating the spirituality that already exists within their communities
  • Respecting their experience of God
  • Responding to what we hear, appreciate, and respect through a relationship of mutuality.

Solidarity in service: morning of reflection

Solidarity in Service: Morning of Reflection is a day offered to enrich and support those serving people in the margins in their faith communities.

I’ve been waiting for years for this healing message.
