On Thursday, May 7, 2020, the USA Northeast Province will hold the Jesuit Gala in a new venue, the Sheraton Boston Ballroom. The event will not only be an opportunity to support the Jesuits and ministries of the province, but also a chance to honor this year’s AMDG Award honorees, John and Kathleen Murphy.

He served 12 years on the BC High board, including two years as chairman. Additionally, he served as a trustee of Boston College for eight years. Kathleen has served as a volunteer and supporter of various organizations, including Nativity Prep in Boston. Additionally, they are quietly philanthropic, supporting diverse causes in Boston and Cape Cod in leadership categories.
