Fr. Fred Enman, SJ, assistant to the dean at Boston College law school and founder of Matthew 25, was honored with the Ignatian Volunteer Corps’ Della Strada Award at a liturgy and reception on April 21.

Fr. Enman is being recognized for his work in establishing and running Matthew 25 since 1988.  The organization buys and renovates abandoned homes in Worcester and Boston then rents the residences to low-income families at a percentage of their income.

Fr. Si Smith, SJ, chaplain and reflector celebrated the liturgy. Fr. Bill Barry, SJ, spiritual director, was the homilist.
