Father's Award

Following our Annual Board Meeting in Ann Arbor, Board members gathered for dinner at the Campus Inn, along with staff, volunteers, and supporters. Before the meal, Chairman Truman Timmis (left) and President Oscar Dussán (right) presented our founder, Father Don Vettese, S.J. (center), with the President Emeritus Award.
The award was inscribed with these words from Pope Francis:

“In the poor and outcast we see Christ’s face; by loving and helping the poor, we love and serve Christ.”

Chairman Timmis thanked Fr. Vettese for his work as President, nothing that as a catalyst for bringing people to our mission, Father has helped ensure the growth and success of International Samaritan in serving our chronically poor brothers and sisters.
