The Saint Luke Award is given annually to someone whose professional life or charitable works embody the ideals of the Institute: the rebuilding of the spiritual, physical, emotional, and intellectual life of those in need. In undertaking these tasks, the honoree is motivated by the gospel ideals of compassion, charity and a belief that all persons are brothers and sisters in Christ.
The 2019 recipient of the Saint Luke Award is Most Reverend Wilton D. Gregory, Archbishop of Washington. “I have grown to know and to respect the work that St. Luke’s does for so many different people: religious, clergy, seminarians. You help the Church in caring for its ministers. You do that so generously and so effectively,” the Archbishop shared during his remarks at the Saint Luke Institute Annual Benefit.
