18 Jesuit Volunteers sent out from Nuremberg.

18 young people from Germany, Austria and Switzerland were sent out on Sunday, 15th July in Nuremberg. As "Jesuit Volunteers" they set out in the coming weeks on partner projects of the Jesuitmission all over the world to work with children and young people, people with disabilities, old and sick people, the homeless or refugees.

Bulgaria, Peru, Kosovo, Kenya - the biographies and backgrounds of the Jesuit Volunteers 2018/19 are as varied, enriching and emotional as their locations. The missioning ceremony was the final highlight after a year of intensive preparation and a special day for their relatives and friends - and the JV team.

Working together to keep a world in balance is more than just a symbolic game for the JVs as they traditionally enter the divine service in St. Clare: "Even if you encounter a lot of suffering and you are often powerless to change things, your work in the projects is important and valuable. The people there are counting on you," Father Klaus Väthröder SJ, director of the German Jeusitenmisssion, gave the 18 in the concluding service.

The Jesuit Mission has been offering volunteer work in partner projects in Eastern Europe, Africa, Asia and Latin America for over ten years. Voluntary service has no age limit and is not only aimed at young school leavers or students. "Jesuit Volunteers" is a cooperation of the three German speaking Jesuitmissions GermanyAustriaSwitzerland under the direction of the German Jesuitenmission in Nuremberg.
