BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS – The Ignatian Solidarity Network will honor Fr. Don MacMillan, S.J., on Tuesday, April 24, 2012, with their national “Robert M. Holstein: Faith that Does Justice Award” at an award reception at Boston College.  MacMillan has served as a as a campus minister at Boston College since 1995 and served at a number of high schools earlier in his life, including Boston College High School.   He is also a graduate of both Boston College (’72) and Boston College High School (’66).

Throughout his life, Fr. Don MacMillan, S.J, has demonstrated tremendous commitment to a Catholic faith grounded in solidarity with the economically poor and marginalized in the United States and around the world.  Hundreds of students at Boston institutions have been impacted by his teaching and ministry, especially those who have been engaged in service and social action efforts including: calling attention to injustice in Latin America including the former U.S. Army School of the Americas, legislative advocacy on Capitol Hill and domestic and international service-immersion experiences to locations as close as Boston’s inner-city and as far as Cuernavaca, Mexico.  Fr. MacMillan has enlightened student’s minds and hearts, providing young people a tangible way to engage their Catholic faith and discover the presence of God in their life and the world around them.  Since the ISN’s inception in 2004, he has been integral part of our effort to mobilize a national network of leaders committed to justice grounded in Gospel teachings.
