Vatican II Awards

The Vatican II awards were established in 1991 to honor men, women and young adults who exemplify the Catholic Church’s vision set forth in the Second Vatican Council.

On Thursday, November 10, 2016, 14 individuals will receive the Archbishop’s Vatican II Award for Distinguished Service for outstanding contributions to the Church and society. A prayer service and award ceremony will take place at 7 p.m. at the Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist, 812 N. Jackson St., Milwaukee, followed by a dessert reception in the Cathedral Atrium.
