Dear SI Alumni and Friends,
SI will host its annual Veteran’s Day Mass on Friday, Nov. 11, at 2 p.m. at the Orradre Chapel. Each year SI alumni and community members gather to pay respect to those who have fought and served our country in military services. If you are able to join, please come to the Chapel by 1:45 p.m., a small reception will follow in the Orradre Courtyard following the service. This Veteran’s Day Mass is open to all.
Over 100 BSU alumni, friends and family attended the 50th Anniversary of the Black Students Union, created in 1972 to address racial disparity on SI campus at the time. It has since grown into one of the largest affinity groups at SI and BSU alumni from across the country came to celebrate the past, present and future of Black excellence at SI. Congratulations to all of the SI BSU alumni on 50 years of community building and service.
Finally, on Nov. 20, 2022, we are awarding the Christ the King award to Justice Peter Siggins ‘73, it is the highest honor we can bestow to an alum. For the first time we are opening up this Feast of Christ the King Mass and reception to the SI community at large. If you wish to attend on Sunday, Nov. 20, please sign up.

Director of Alumni Relations
In the library, we often help students find experienced people to interview in various fields for their academic and passion project research. In order to better facilitate this service, we are creating a Library of Human Knowledge, Experience, and Expertise, a living library of actual people who are willing to answer questions about their knowledge.
Justice Peter Siggins ’73 to Receive the Christ the King Award
On Wednesday, May 18, 2022 the SI Alumni Board voted to award Justice Peter Siggins '73 the highest honor it bestows upon an alum of St. Ignatius College Preparatory, the Christ the King Award.
The Christ the King Award honors SI alumni "who have distinguished themselves in their professions, who have shown a commitment to the SI community and who best exemplify the ideal of service to God and fellow man."
The Board chose Justice Siggins for this award because of a combination of his professional accomplishments as a former California Appellate Court Justice and pro-bono work in the Jesuit community for various schools including St. Ignatius College Preparatory.
