Saint Luke Institute Annual Benefit


Thank you for your support! The 2016 Saint Luke Institute Annual Benefit, honoring Donald Cardinal Wuerl, Archbishop of Washington, raised $500,000 for our charity fund. Your generosity will help priests and religious in need regain healthy life and ministry.


This annual gala evening brings together friends and supporters dedicated to Saint Luke Institute’s mission: supporting healthy life and ministry for Catholic clergy and religious through psychological and spiritual care and education.


About the Benefit


The Annual Benefit traditionally is held on a Monday evening near the October 18 Feast of Saint Luke, the patron saint of doctors and health care professionals. 


The Benefit helps us fulfill our commitment to assist our Catholic priests and men and women religious as they rebuild their lives so they may return to healthy ministry.


Your support of the Annual Benefit helps us provide psychological, spiritual and physical healing to priests, sisters and brothers in need, regardless of their ability to pay, and helps us expand online education for clergy, religious and lay leaders worldwide.


Saint Luke Award


The Saint Luke Award, presented during the evening, recognizes a person or persons whose professional life or charitable works embody the ideals of the Institute: the rebuilding of the spiritual, physical, emotional and intellectual life of clergy and men and women religious in need.


The 2016 honoree was Donald Cardinal Wuerl, Archbishop of Washington
