Terry and Jeannie Lindsay Receive National Award
Charles T. “Terry” and Jeannie Lindsay received the 2017 Saint Luke Award from Saint Luke Institute during a benefit held at the Apostolic Nunciature in Washington, D.C., on Oct. 16.
The Saint Luke Award is given annually to a person or persons whose professional life or charitable works embody the ideals of the Institute: the rebuilding of the spiritual, physical, emotional and intellectual life of clergy and men and women religious in need.
Terry Lindsay served on the Board of Directors of Saint Luke Institute for more than 13 years, including six as chairman. He is now the chairman of the Saint Luke Institute Foundation Board of Trustees.
He is the retired chairman of the Lindsay Automotive Group, a family-owned, nationally-ranked business that has operated for more than 54 years and has over 900 employees. He and Jeannie are members of the Order of Malta and have been active in charitable activities throughout their 56-year marriage with organizations such as Catholic Charities of Arlington, Children’s Hospital, Hospice of Northern Virginia, Autism Speaks and the Washington Boys & Girls Club.
“The Lindsays are an example of a true partnership grounded in their love for each other, their Catholic faith and their commitment to their family and community,” said Capuchin Father David Songy, a psychologist and president of Saint Luke Institute.
He added, “Throughout Terry’s years of service on Saint Luke’s Board, he gave generously of his time, spirit and expertise. The concern he and Jeannie have had and continue to have for our priests and religious and the Lindsays’ support of our mission over the years has been remarkable. We are grateful and happy to honor them with the 2017 Saint Luke Award.”
Past recipients of the Saint Luke Award include Cardinal Donald Wuerl, Archbishop Joseph Kurtz, Bishop Paul S. Loverde, and former Secretary for Veterans Affairs R. James Nicholson and Suzanne Nicholson.
