The University presented its annual Pedro Arrupe, S.J., Award for Distinguished Contributions to Ignatian Mission and Ministry to Monsignor Joseph P. Kelly, executive director of Catholic Social Services for the Diocese of Scranton, at a ceremony on campus on April 3. Msgr. Kelly also serves as the executive director of both the St. Francis of Assisi Kitchen in Scranton and the St. Vincent de Paul Kitchen in Wilkes-Barre. 

The Arrupe Award is named in honor of the late 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.

“Arrupe wanted all of us to understand that we needed to be men and women for others … and challenged the entire world in an extraordinary way,” said Msgr. Kelly. “He rekindled the fire of service and challenged us all to do more to raise up the poor among us.”
