Alumni answer the call to serve
November 29th, 2012 by 


Five members of the Class of 2012, from left, Sara MacKenzie, Benjamin Nardozzi, Kathryn Giardino, Caroline Cataldo, and J Kevin Crowley, have embarked on a year of full-time volunteer service with Jesuit Volunteer Corps Northwest.

Nineteen alumni have answered the call to serve. They are currently working in locations around the world as Jesuit volunteers. With 14 former students participating in the Jesuit Volunteer Corps, Holy Cross is the third most-represented college nationwide for the second year in a row. An additional five graduates are serving in Jesuit Volunteer Corps Northwest, which operates independently.

Rooted in the core values of social and ecological justice, simple living, community, and spirituality, the Jesuit Volunteer Corps and the Jesuit Volunteers Corps Northwest programs give young men and women the chance to work full time for justice and peace. Participants serve for one or two years, during which time they live among the poor and marginalized and strive to examine and combat social justice.

Jesuit volunteers work at schools, health clinics, legal clinics, parishes, and non-profit organizations in the United States and abroad. Those working in the Northwest also teach in schools on Native American reservations.

The Holy Cross graduates are among 322 Jesuit volunteers living in 38 cities in the United States and six other countries around the world. There are 138 Jesuit volunteers serving in 21 locales throughout the five states of the Northwest (Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon and Washington).

The following graduates are currently serving as Jesuit volunteers:

  • Linsey Barker ’12 – Civicorps Corps Member Academy; Oakland, Calif.
  • Rebecca Camargo ’12 – East Bay Community Law Center; Oakland, Calif.
  • Kelsey Cappetta ’12 – Catholic Charities Vincent House; Syracuse, N.Y.
