Arrupe Award Honors Friends of the Poor

Arrupe Award Honors Friends of the Poor
Sister Ann Walsh, I.H.M., director of the Friends of the Poor

The 2016 Pedro Arrupe, S.J., Award for Distinguished Contributions to Ignatian Mission and Ministry was presented to the Friends of the Poor, a fitting honor in this Jubilee Year of Mercy.

The Friends of the Poor, founded by the late Sister Adrian Barrett, IHM, with the simple goal of easing the burden of those living in poverty, is celebrating its 30th anniversary year. In accepting the award on behalf of the charity, Sister Ann Walsh, I.H.M., director of the Friends of the Poor, acknowledged the selfless service of Sister Adrian, who “got up and gave it up to God every day.” Friends of the Poor provides assistance to those in need with food, clothing, household items and furniture, in addition to hosting holiday dinners and running after-school programs for children.

The Arrupe Award is named in honor of the late Rev. Pedro Arrupe, S.J., superior general of the Society of Jesus from 1965 to 1983, and was instituted in 1995 to recognize outstanding contributions in Ignatian-inspired ministries.
