The Catherine of Siena Excellence in Ministry Award was established in 2003 to recognize the increasingly widespread role of the non-ordained in the Church and to highlight what the Church can accomplish when it calls upon the gifts of its lay women and men. St. Catherine of Siena was a Dominican who ministered during a time of trial and transition in the Catholic Church, and so Aquinas Institute chose her as a fitting namesake for this award.
Nominations for the award will be accepted until March 15, 2009. To nominate a candidate for the Catherine of Siena Excellence in Ministry Award, please send a brief letter describing the ministerial work or achievements of the nominee to:
