One of the Fra Angelico recipients who nominated Irene Mary Diones wrote: “Irene Mary’s strength derives from the inspirational value and variety in productions of music and visual art including calligraphy. A composer and performer of liturgical music, she deserves recognition for the consistent and generous contribution of her talents to gospel inspired groups. Review of her photographic images shows her inner contemplative at work and the external energy it creates in a group.

 A singular dedication to the benefit of others has marked a decades-long membership in DIA. Whenever a call goes out for members’ cooperation, from the Board or from the newsletter, you can count on Irene Mary to be among the first to respond and to persuade others to do so” The author of these words?—Elizabeth Michael Boyle OP.

Irene Mary designed the DIA logo which has been our symbol for twenty four years and subsequently designed and made the DIA banner which hangs on every Gathering podium and is carried during our Liturgy processions.

She has graced us with her multi-talented abilities by giving totally of herself for the needs of DIA and to others to whom she ministers daily.

Irene Mary epitomizes the ideals of the Dominican Institute for the Arts because she continuously lives the mission of DIA by preaching God’s Word through her multifaceted art.

Therefore, it is with great pleasure that the Dominican Institute for the Arts presents the 2020 Fra Angelico Award to Dominican Sister of Mission San Jose, Irene Mary Diones.
