Kino Border Initiative Honored with Arrupe Award
On April 25 the annual Pedro Arrupe, S.J., Award for Distinguished Contributions to Ignatian Mission and Ministries was presented to Kino Border Initiative (KBI). KBI is a Catholic collaborative effort between the U.S. and Mexico that focuses on humanitarian assistance, education, research and social-pastoral outreach in the area of migration. The Arrupe Award is named in honor of the late Very Rev. Pedro Arrupe, S.J., the superior general of the Society of Jesus from 1965 to 1983. The University instituted the award in 1995 to further its namesake’s vision by recognizing men and women for outstanding contributions in a wide variety of Ignatian-inspired ministries.
