Service. Community. Reflection.
"We are frequently tempted to think that holiness is only for those who can withdraw from ordinary affairs to spend much time in prayer. That is not the case. We are all called to be holy by living our lives with love and by bearing witness in everything we do, wherever we find ourselves."
Ignatians West transforms lives by supporting nonprofit agencies that assist people who are poor or marginalized through the service and companionship of mature adults 50+ who are available to share their experience and talent in meaningful part time volunteer positions and reflect on their encounters in the Ignatian tradition.

Ignatians West volunteers serve throughout the greater Los Angeles area with our partner agencies
I have been inspired by the other volunteers' work carried on in a true Christian spirit of love and giving.
I have learned that we are all God's creatures - that the first shall be last and the last shall be first.
I love that this group strengthens me in my spiritual journey. There is so much wisdom and faith in our meetings.
Working in the spiritual care community is so enlightening. I am improving my ability to see with the eyes of my heart.
