Child being baptized

Honorable Mention, Amateur

The Baptism of Jonathan Hamacher
" Love consists in sharing what one has and what one is with those one loves," says Ignatius in his Spiritual Exercises. The re-creation of one in the image of Christ takes place at Baptism when God shares his life and breathes the life of the Spirit into a person. Here Fr. Doug Leonhardt, SJ, baptizes my grandson, Jonathan Hamacher, at the Carmelite Monastery in Pewaukee, Wisconsin.

Company Magazine Photo Contest

Honorable Mention, Amateur

I run a five-week summer service program in the Dominican Republic called Somos Amigos. The program has brought down more than a hundred Georgetown Prep seniors, including Jason Smoke in this photo, to live and work with the poor in the country. They have helped build five schools, four aqueducts, and a road, but the greatest thing they build is friendship and solidarity with the Dominicans through work and prayer.

Santa Comes to St. Anthony's Pre-K
Parishioner Joe Smith let his beard grow from last July so that he could play Santa for the St. Anthony's pre-kindergarten class in December 1999. Little Colleen was perfectly comfortable telling Santa her secrets.

Fr. Richard Perry, SJ, religion teacher and campus minister at Seattle Prep, gives a special blessing to a student during communion at a schoolwide Easter liturgy. Just as it was for Ignatius, liturgy is central to who we are in our relationship with Jesus.

Children in Hiroshima

Honorable Mention, Professional

A Jesuit's Prayer for India and Pakistan
When I visited Hiroshima in 1981 I kept my eyes open for a photograph that could speak about resurrection after devastation. The opportunity presented itself when I met a group of kindergartners visiting the Peace Memorial at Ground Zero.
