Le Moyne College Holds Dedication Ceremony for Commissioned Sculpture

<p>SYRACUSE, N.Y. (For Immediate Release) … Le Moyne College will hold a prayer service to dedicate a commissioned sculpture of St. Ignatius of Loyola, founder of the Society of Jesus, on Tuesday, March 11, at 4 p.m. in the Panasci Family Chapel.<br /> <br /> The sculpture, titled “St. Ignatius Loyola: Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted,” was commissioned through the generosity of the Class of 2006 through their senior class gift campaign; Fred Picardi ’51 who matched the dollars raised by the seniors; and the Le Moyne Jesuit Community. <br /> <br /> Artist John Collier, who created the piece, is an award-winning sculptor whose work can be found in religious and secular locations around the world. He was chosen from more than 30 artists to create the Catholic Memorial at Ground Zero in New York City, to honor those lost in the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001.
