Recipient of the
2019 Saint Luke Award
Most Reverend Wilton D. Gregory, Archbishop of Washington
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.

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.
Every Christian’s task is to manifest their heartfelt belief in Christ; to enlighten their families and communities with actions reflective of the command to “love the Lord, your God, with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. . . . (and) your neighbor as yourself.” (Mt 22:37-39) Each generation lives out their faith in response to the signs of the times and real needs of the community, both inside and outside of the church. The context in which we live is challenging. This is a vital time to proclaim the Gospel to future generations. It is our time to promote healing within the church.
