Spring Hill College Alumni Serve as Jesuit Volunteers

Mon, 09/29/2008 (All day)

MOBILE, Ala. – Five graduates from Spring Hill College have committed to serve in the Jesuit Volunteer Corps and Jesuit Volunteers International, dedicating themselves to a year or more of simple living and working for social justice. They live in a spiritually supportive community as they walk with people living in poverty or on the margins of society.

Patricia Archer ’08 will be serving with JVC East in New Jersey at Hopeworks ’N Camden. Gabriel Capote ’08 will be serving with JVC Midwest in Detroit at Alternatives For Girls. Sara Bradford ’08 will be serving with JVC Midwest in Chicago at Elam Davies Social Services Center.

Bridget Mulroy ’07 will continue her service with JVI at Assumption Primary School in the Marshall Islands that began in 2007. Chelsea Mulvey ’06 will continue her service with JVI at Colegio Miguel Pro in Peru that began in 2006. Mulvey has chosen to stay a third year.

Since 1956, the Jesuit Volunteer Corps has offered women and men an opportunity to work full-time for justice and peace. Jesuit Volunteers are called to the mission of serving the poor directly, working for structural change in the United States, and accompanying people in developing countries. The challenge to Jesuit Volunteers is to integrate Christian faith by working and living among the poor and marginalized, by living simply and in community with other Jesuit Volunteers and by examining the causes of social injustice.
