Press ReleasesLumen Gentium Annual Catholic Service Awards Diocese of Providence

May 16, 20180

Congratulations to all award winners!

In 2012, Bishop Thomas J. Tobin, convened a committee to establish an annual program to recognize individuals, groups and organizations for their service to the Catholic Church in the Diocese of Providence. A significant priority of the Diocese, a springtime dinner recognizes those for their distinguished service and personal contributions to the life and ministry of the Church in the Diocese in a number of specific categories. The annual event also serves as a fundraiser for various social ministry programs and ministries of the diocese.

To formally recognize these dedicated individuals and groups, Bishop Tobin in 2013 established the Lumen Gentium Awards – to be presented in 10 specific categories to recognize those who have demonstrated outstanding service to the church in their parish, the Diocese of Providence and/or the local community-at-large. A committee, under the leadership of the Vicar General/Moderator of the Curia, was established to solicit nominees from across the Diocese. All nominees are reviewed by the committee and final recommendations submitted to Bishop Tobin for approval.
