50 years as Jesuits in 2011

Fathers Richard Boyle and William Stoeger each celebrate 50 years as Jesuits in 2011, and Father George Coyne celebrates his 60th!

50years-as-JesuitsFr. Boyle is from the New England Province and spends many a night observing the heavens including the night of the first remote observing done on the VATT. Originally from California, Fr. Stoeger is known for his fascinating conversations on such complicated issues as multiverses and for leading memorable retreats. A member of the Baltimore province, Fr. Coyne often describes reading “forbidden” astronomy and physics books in the Novitiate—look where it got him! In grateful recognition of these men and their service as Jesuits, the VOF Board presented each Jubilarian with a special gift during this year’s Awards Dinner as well as a gift in their name in support of the foundation.
