Honoring Most Reverend Wilton Gregory

Recipient of the 2019 St. Luke Award


On May 21, 2019, Archbishop Wilton D. Gregory was installed as seventh Archbishop of Washington. He has served in many leading roles in the U.S. church. In November 2001, he was elected president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB). During his tenure in office, the crisis of sex abuse by Catholic clergy escalated; and under his leadership, the bishops implemented the “Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People.”


Archbishop Gregory has written extensively on church issues, including pastoral statements on the death penalty, euthanasia/physician-assisted suicide and has published numerous articles on the subject of liturgy, particularly in the African-American community.
