August 2018 - The Jesuits of the USA Central and Southern Province welcomed Sr. Amy Diesen, OSF, as the new director of the St. Louis Ignatian Volunteer Corps. Sr. Diesen, a member of the Franciscan Sisters of Our Lady of Perpetual Help, began her work with IVC on Aug. 20.

“I am grateful for the opportunity to serve with and for the volunteers, reflectors, agencies and the Jesuit community as we journey deeper into God’s love through our encounters with the poor and one another,” Sr. Diesen said. 

Sister Diesen has a master’s degree in pastoral studies from the Aquinas Institute of Theology, and served as pastoral associate at Christ, Prince of Peace Parish in Manchester, Mo., and St. Joseph Parish in Lebanon, Ill.
