Congratulations to Professor Maryanne Confoy RSC on being awarded the Ignatian Companions Medal at the Jesuit Province Gathering held on Wednesday 24th April 2019 in Sydney.
The Ignatian Companions Medal is awarded from time to time to express gratitude to people associated with the Province’s mission. Such people are not those who have simply ‘done their job’ over a period of time but who have given of themselves in voluntary ways beyond the parameters of their position descriptions. They have shown outstanding and generous service to the mission of the Society of Jesus in Australia.
Emeritus Professor Brendan Byrne SJ paid tribute to Professor Maryanne Confoy RSC for her contribution to the service of Ignatian Spirituality, the Intellectual Apostolate, advancing the mission and formation of Jesuits in Australia and in Boston, USA.
Jesuit College of Spirituality is a College of the University of Divinity and a work of the Australian Province of the Society of Jesus.
