Rev. Richard Gribble, C.S.C., received the 2013 Louise F. Hegarty Award for Excellence in Teaching at Stonehill College.
The award was given to Fr. Gribble, a professor of religious studies at the College, as a surprise during Stonehill’s Presidential Inauguration and Convocation ceremony on Sept. 20.
The Hegarty award is given annually to a full-time faculty member whose teaching has had a marked influence on the lives of Stonehill students. Fr. Gribble began teaching at the College in 1995. He has written more than 20 books on American church history and spirituality. In addition to teaching, he is actively involved with local parish ministries, as well as campus activities such as the team faculty advisor and community associate programs.
Stonehill President Rev. John Denning, C.S.C., praised Fr. Gribble in his inaugural address to the Stonehill community. “Fr. Gribble embodies the charism of the Congregation of Holy Cross. An educator in the faith, he is a gifted and talented teacher, a diligent and tireless researcher and scholar. He is also a man who gives generously of himself outside the classroom,” Fr. Denning said.
