Recipient of the
2022 Saint Luke Award
Rev. David Songy, O.F.M.Cap., S.T.D., Psy.D., President and CEO, Saint Luke Institute
Fr. David Songy, O.F.M.Cap., S.T.D., Psy.D., President and CEO, will be honored with the Saint Luke Award for his steadfast service to clergy and religious men and women in need of mental health services. Fr. Songy will be returning to his religious order in Denver in July 2022 after eight years of service to Saint Luke Institute.
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.
