2017 Saint Luke Award Honorees – Celebrating 40 Years of Compassionate Care





The Saint Luke Award is given annually to 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.  


This year’s honorees are Terry and Jeannie Lindsay. Blessed with a 56-year marriage, theirs is a true partnership grounded in their love for each other, their Catholic faith and their commitment to their family and community. They have been blessed with three sons and 12 grandchildren.


Terry, who just stepped down as Chairman and long-time member of the Board of Directors of Saint Luke Institute, describes Jeannie as “the rock” who provides the solid foundation for their support of Saint Luke’s mission. 


A native of Washington, DC, and graduate of Duke University, Terry is retired chairman of Lindsay Automotive Group, a family-owned, nationally-ranked business that has been in business for more than 54 years and has over 900 employees. Jeannie is a graduate of Immaculata University and a strong supporter of programs for children with developmental disabilities.


The Lindsays have changed numerous lives through charitable activities with organizations such as Catholic Charities, Children’s Hospital, Hospice of Northern Virginia, Autism Speaks and the Washington Boys & Girls Club.


They are members of the Order of Malta-Federal Association, with whom Jeannie worked on the annual Lourdes Pilgrimage for five years. Terry was the 2015 recipient of the John Carroll Society Medal and has served on 15 boards of directors, both professional and charitable.


Throughout Terry’s 13+ years of service on Saint Luke’s Board, he gave generously of his time, spirit and expertise. The concern he and Jeannie have had and continue to have for our priests and religious and the Lindsays’ support of our mission over the years has been remarkable. We are grateful and happy to honor them with the 2017 Saint Luke Award.
