Matteo Ricci, SJ was an Italian Jesuit priest and one of the founding figures of the Jesuit China missions.
The secret of Ricci’s success was his ability to go beyond cultural barriers and befriend people of another race and religion. His friend Feng Yingjing's remark brings out the spirit of this great missionary. “He treated the affairs of our fathers as if they were his own and our fathers in turn treated his as if they were ours.”
Guests enjoyed food and fellowship as they honored and celebrated members of our community for their many contributions in promoting diversity and inclusion at Fordham Prep: Mrs. Maureen Martinez and Mrs. Erica Keough received the Wanda Pineiro Award for Diversity, senior Chris Chao received the Matteo Ricci award.

Additionally, a special thank you to Joe Moglia '67, Chairman of the Board at TD Ameritrade and the Head Football Coach & Chair of Athletics at Coastal Carolina University, for introducing Tom Joyce, his long-time friend and colleague.
Mr. Joyce's remarks and forthright comments reflected the Ignatian ideals of service, humility and becoming "a man for others," which helped guide his thinking and influenced his judgment throughout the financial crisis at Knight Capital. His leadership in the aftermath of a monumental electronic trading error demonstrates the importance of honesty and integrity in the face of moral and ethical challenges.
