Call For Nominations: The St. Ignatius Award

Call for Nominations: The St. Ignatius Award

Each year, the Deglman Center for Ignatian Spirituality recognizes members of Creighton’s faculty and staff who live the spirit of St. Ignatius.  Their participation in the mission of Creighton and their involvements beyond university life reflect the Ignatian ideals of Magis, Cura Personalis, and being persons for and with others.  To know a recipient of the St. Ignatius Award is to have experienced something of St. Ignatius, himself.

The Deglman Center invites you to nominate a member of Creighton’s faculty or staff who lives the spirit of St. Ignatius.  Jesuits are not eligible for the St. Ignatius Award.  The awards will be presented during Founders Week at the Presidents Convocation on Tuesday, Feb. 5, 2019.  A list of past honorees is available here:

Nominations should include:

Name of the Nominee

Department and Position of the nominee

Name, Phone Number, and E-mail Address of the Person Submitting the Nomination

Please describe, in as much depth as you are able, your understanding of how the nominee lives out the ideals of Magis, Cura Personalis, and being a person for others.  In this sense, Magis as “more” is not a quantity, but a quality of soul which desires God’s goodness to be seen, expressing God’s greatness through our littleness.  Cura Personalis is a spirit of personally caring for others, who are themselves loved creations of God, and encouraging them to an awareness of God’s love.  Please be as detailed as possible in your statement, and feel free to describe the graceful interactions you have witnessed in the nominee’s work life, family life, and other involvements.

You may e-mail your nomination to juliecarlson@creighton.edu or send it to the Deglman Center for Ignatian Spirituality, St. John’s Church Room 201.  The deadline for nominations is Friday, Dec. 21, 2018.
