The Augustinian Province of Saint Thomas of Villanova announces the inaugural Saint Augustine Medal and recipients Patty and Jay Wright.

The medal will be presented at a dinner to be held at 583 PARK AVENUE in New York City, on April 27, 2017.

The Saint Augustine Medal, presented by the Augustinian Province of Saint Thomas of Villanova, is bestowed upon an individual or a couple who exemplify the spirit and teachings of Saint Augustine, a deep commitment to the Order of Saint Augustine and the Augustinian values of Truth, Unity and Charity. The recipients exhibit a strong desire to live life in the path of Saint Augustine in their personal, professional and spiritual lives and demonstrate a commitment of service and generosity to the Province.

Patty Reilly Wright is a graduate of Villanova University. Jay Wright is the William J. Finneran Endowed Head Coach of Villanova men’s basketball team, a position he has held for over 15 years. Patty and Jay embrace the Augustinian mission and continue to have a positive influence on the athletes and students of Villanova University. They are deeply committed to the Augustinians and collaborate with the Province on many fronts, including their generous support of the Augustinian Fund, which provides funds for Augustinian ministries and programs of the Province.
