Nominations are being accepted for the 2015 Cardinal Bernardin New Leadership Award. This annual award is given to a Catholic young adult between the ages of 18 and 40 who has demonstrated leadership against poverty and injustice in the United States. The individual selected is actively engaged in anti-poverty work, consistently immersed in low-income projects and Catholic parishes, and possesses a unique skill set and energy that is used to advocate for their commitment to the poor.
This award is sponsored by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) and is a movement of the Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD). The award recipient will receive $1,000 and be honored at a reception held in conjunction with the June 2015 meeting of the USCCB in St. Louis, Missouri. Nominations and correspondence are due March 15, 2015.
In an effort to shed light on the work of the Lasallian mission and celebrate the efforts of young people in the Lasallian Region of North America (RELAN), the Regional Young Lasallians Committee has made identifying and nominating eligible young Lasallians from RELAN a priority by working to nominate two or three people each year.
