The Madonna Della Strada Award is named after the first church that Ignatius and the early Jesuits obtained to serve the urban poor in the heart of Rome, the Sancta Maria Della Strada.  Today, the IVC Mdonna Della Strada Award is presented to a person or organization reflecting the Ignatian values of direct service to the poor and engaging in work that is dedicated to creating a just society.

The Sheila O’Malley Vision and Dedication Award honors an individual, who like Sheila O’ Malley (1949-2016) envisions the growth of IVC to serve people in need, deepen Ignatian spirituality and spread the Kingdom of God on earth everywhere.  With humility, love, relentless energy, empathy and enthusiasm, the recipient of this award mentors others and leads with a sense of humor.  This award is presented with joy to a person of prayer, faith and discernment.
