This year we focused on our commitment as Catholics to work to eliminate poverty around the world. This year’s theme was “Is Poverty Inevitable? A Practical and Prophetic Response.”
We were blessed to host John Carr, founder and director of the Initiative on Catholic Social Thought and Public Life at Georgetown University, as our keynote speaker on “The Mission and Message of a Jesuit Pope Named Francis.”
Another highlight of the night was honoring Fr. Larry Snyder, the former president of Catholic Charities USA and current Vice President for Mission at the University of St. Thomas in Minnesota, with the 2016 Anselm Moons, OFM Award for his commitment to mission and the laity.
We were also proud to award Brandon Turner of St. John’s University in New York with our second annual San Damiano Servant Leadership Award for his outstanding devotion to volunteering in his community.
