Ignatian Award

Presented to an alumnus/a in recognition of community service in keeping with the ideals set forth by St. Ignatius Loyola. This award recognizes those who have dedicated their spirit to making a difference in the lives of others through selfless acts of humanitarianism, as embodied in the following prayer:

Eternal Word, only begotten Son of God,
Teach me true generosity.
Teach me to serve you as you deserve.
To give without counting the cost,
To fight heedless of wounds,
To labor without seeking rest,
To sacrifice myself without thought of any reward
Save the knowledge that I have done your will.
- St. Ignatius Loyola
