2023 Patrick Rodgers Memorial Award Recipient
Thursday, 2 November 2023

On Wednesday 1 November the College celebrated the Ignatian Service Assembly, honouring the legacy of Patrick Rodgers with an inaugural Memorial Award. This year’s award was presented to a highly deserving recipient, former student Gianni Taranto (OR2014). We thank Gianni’s mother, Tor Toranto, for accepting the award on behalf of Gianni, whilst he continues his important work with the UNWorld Food Program in Somalia.

Ignatian Service bridges faith and education, grounded in the rich Jesuit tradition. It empowers students to embody conscience, compassion, commitment, competency, and faith in action. In serving others, we discover a transformative path toward a more just and empathetic world.
