Join us as we celebrate the conferral of the Saint Luke Award upon Most Reverend Timothy Broglio, J.C.D., Archbishop for the Military Services and lift up the ministry of Catholic military chaplains.
Together we provide hope in the Church.

Recipient of the
2020 Saint Luke Award
Most Reverend Timothy Broglio, J.C.D., Archbishop for the Military Services
Archbishop Timothy P. Broglio, J.C.D., will receive the 2020 Saint Luke Award to recognize his commitment to the well-being of Catholic clergy and consecrated religious. In receiving this award, he also brings recognition to Catholic military chaplains who provide comfort, the sacraments, and guidance to the men and women serving in the military at home and abroad.
On November 19, 2007, Archbishop Broglio was named the fourth Archbishop of the Military Services USA, and installed January 25, 2008, the Feast of the Conversion of Saint Paul. The Archbishop was ordained as an Archbishop by His Holiness St. John Paul II on March 19, 2001. Born in 1951 in Cleveland Heights, Ohio, Archbishop Broglio attended Catholic schools in Cleveland, Ohio. He earned a Bachelor of Arts in Classics at Boston College, an S.T.B. in Theology, and a Doctorate in Canon Law from the Pontifical Gregorian University, Rome. He was ordained to the priesthood (for the diocese of Cleveland) on May 19, 1977 in the Chapel of the Immaculate Conception of the North American College, Rome.
The Archbishop served as Secretary of the Apostolic Nunciature in Abidjan, Ivory Coast (1983-1987) and of the Apostolic Nunciature in Asuncion, Paraguay (1987-1990). From 1990 to 2001, Archbishop Broglio served as Chief of Cabinet to Angelo Cardinal Sodano, Secretary of State to Saint Pope John Paul II and desk officer for Central America. In February 2001, the Archbishop was named Apostolic Nuncio to the Dominican Republic and Apostolic Delegate to Puerto Rico. As a member of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB), the Archbishop currently serves as Secretary of the USCCB and is a member of the Administrative Committee.
The Archbishop’s honors include Commander of the National Order of Côte d’Ivoire; Commander of the Order of the Polar Star, Sweden; Gran Cross with Silver Badge of the Order of Sánchez, Duarte and Mella, Dominican Republic; Grand Officer of the Order of Bernardo O’Higgins of Chile; Commander of the Order of Antonio Jose de Irisarri of Guatemala; Grand Cross of the Order of the Libertador San Martin of Argentina; Officer of the Orden de Mayo, Argentina; Commander of the Italian Republic; Knight Commander of the Holy Sepulchre with star; Honorary Conventual Chaplain of the Order of Malta; Grand Cross of the Order of St. Michael of the Wing; Grand Officer of the Order of Sts. Maurice and Lazarus; Knight Grand Cross of the Sacred Military Constantinian Order of St. George.
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 award is bestowed each year on or around the October 18 Feast of St. Luke.
