Nominations for the annual Lumen Gentium Awards presented to those that have demonstrated outstanding service to the Church in 9 specific categories are now open. Groups, organizations and individuals (laity, clergy and religious) are eligible. While it is expected that nominees come from within the Catholic community, other nominees will also be considered, provided that they and their work are consistent with the teachings and mission of the Catholic Church. A nominating committee will forward its final recommendations to Bishop Tobin for approval.
The recipients of the Lumen Gentium Award will be honored at an Awards dinner scheduled for May 13, 2020, at the Twin River Event Center in Lincoln, Rhode Island. Proceeds from the Lumen Gentium 2020 Dinner will benefit Keep the Heat On and Emmanuel House.
We are very blessed to have so many dedicated and faithful people working for our Church. Selecting the recipients is a daunting task! If you have nominated someone in the past and they have not been selected, please consider re-nominating them.
Information and the nomination form can be found at www.dioceseofprovidence.org or by contacting Karen Davis, 401-278-4600, e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. All nominations must be completed by 4:30 PM on February 13, 2020. Nomination forms received after that date cannot be accepted.
