Neumann University president Rosalie Mirenda has been selected to receive the 2012 Catholic Philopatrian Literary Institute’s Sourin Award.
The award is designed to recognize individuals who have followed the example of Father Edward Sourin, founder of the Literary Institute, in dedicating their lives to the day-to-day implementation of the Catholic faith in their business, in their family lives, and in their social activities.
Past recipients of the Award include Justin Cardinal Rigali, Senator Rick Santorum and his wife Karen, Timothy Flanagan, and Cardinal John P. Foley.
Mirenda serves on several boards and organizations, including the archdiocesan Board of Education, Drexel Neumann Academy and the Association of Franciscan Colleges and Universities. She received the Papal Honor of the Cross Pro Ecclesiae from the Vatican, and awards from the Catholic Leadership Institute, the Cathedral of Basilica of SS. Peter and Paul (Keys and Sword Award), and other organizations.
Mirenda will receive the award April 19, 2012.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
