In September,  Companions in Ignatian Service and Spirituality began yet another program year,  this time in three communities across the Bay Area:  East Bay,  South Bay and San Francisco.   With 24 first year participants and 14 second year members,  Ignatian Companions looks forward to another year of amazing service solidarity.    We have 125 alumni (Xavier Companions) from all over the region as we begin our 7th year in San Jose and our 5th year in Berkeley.   Come join us at our monthly liturgy and lunches!
