Quinn, S.J.; and Kimberly A. Pavlick, Ph.D., assistant professor of communication.

The University presented its annual Pedro Arrupe, S.J., Award for Distinguished Contributions to Ignatian Mission and Ministry to Margaret Ann O’Neill of the Sisters of Charity, the founder and director of Centro Arte para la Paz (Art Center for Peace), in El Salvador. The presentation was made to a standing-room-only crowd on campus on Feb. 26.

Sister O’Neill accepted the award, saying it was a “social award” that also belongs to her family, the Sisters of Charity and her students, as well as many members of the University community who have traveled to El Salvador over the years through various service and mission initiatives. Sister O’Neill has lived in El Salvador for 25 years, most recently serving as director of Centro Arte para la Paz, Suchitoto, El Salvador, a regional educational cultural center promoting peace through dance, art and theological reflection.

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.
