Catholic Leadership Institute honored four individuals for their outstanding Catholic leadership at a banquet Nov 9 in Drexel Hill.
The honorees are Lisa Brenninkmeyer (co-chair of the board and founder of Walking with Purpose), William Donohue (president and CEO of the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights), Father Jack Wall (president of the Catholic Extension) and Sister Angela Ann Zukowski, MHSH (director of the Institute for Pastoral Initiatives and professor of religious studies, University of Dayton).
Catholic Leadership Institute developed the awards for outstanding Catholic leadership in 2000 to recognize people in the Catholic Church whose exemplary leadership in the family, workplace, community and Church has been inspired by their Catholic faith.
“Catholic Leadership Institute is blessed to honor these outstanding Catholic leaders and Christian witnesses for their commitment to living and sharing the Gospel with passion through their most unique and important ministries,” said Timothy C. Flanagan, founder and chair of Catholic Leadership Institute.
The event drew more than 500 guests, including bishops, priests and Catholic leaders from around the country. For more information about Catholic Leadership Institute visit www.CatholicLeaders.org.
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.
