The Korean CLC is a vibrant national Ignatian community for mission that has been thriving and continuously increasing membership for well over 20 years. KCLC first began in NY in the early and mid-1990’s as a ministry of the NY Metro CLC through the work of the NY EA Fr. Dan Fitzpatrick SJ at Fordham University. Fr. Dan introduced CLC to young Fr. Benedict Kim SJ who was studying at Fordham at the time and living in the same Jesuit community. Through their close collaboration and the sharing of NY Metro CLC’s resources and guidance on how to foster new CLC communities, Fr. Kim was able to start and nurture the first KCLC community in 1995. From this point KCLC expanded quickly in the NY area and in several major cities over the next decade and continues to thrive and attract many new members to this day.
There are several regional Korean CLC (KCLC) websites:
