Cardinal Wuerl presents “Manifesting the Kingdom” Awards to DC-area residents for their good works at Basilica of the National Shrine on Jan. 8

Washington, DC – On Sunday, Jan. 8, Cardinal Donald Wuerl recognized 156 Catholics from D.C.-area parishes and community organizations for their exceptional service to the Archdiocese of Washington. The “Manifesting the Kingdom” awards were individually presented by Cardinal Wuerl at the conclusion of Sunday’s Epiphany Mass held at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception located on Michigan Avenue in Washington, DC. 

In 2006, Cardinal Wuerl instituted the “Manifesting the Kingdom” awards on his becoming Archbishop of Washington.

This is only the third time the awards have been presented.

The awards are given to laymen and consecrated men and women who serve the Catholic Church and their communities faithfully and reflect Christ’s mission.

Pastors from each of the 139 parishes of the Archdiocese of Washington were invited to nominate an individual or couple to receive the award. Religious communities and Catholic offices across the archdiocese also provided nominations.
