2018 Caritas Award Recipient

The Caritas Award – This year as we celebrate our 40th annual Caritas Award Dinner, the Catholic Foundation of Manitoba is pleased to honour The Catholic Health Association of Manitoba (CHAM). Through the ministries of education, healthcare ethics, spiritual care, Catholic ownership and social justice, CHAM fulfills its mission of compassion concern and respect for all persons.  It strives to promote leadership, collaboration, and sensitivities in the evolving health care services offered to the people of Manitoba.

The Catholic Foundation of Manitoba Service Award – André Blondeau, long-time Board Member and Treasurer of the Catholic Foundation of Manitoba will be recognized for his support of Catholic value in the community.

Key note Speaker – Dr. Puchalski, Professor of Medicine

Dr. Puchalski is the Founder and Director of GWish at the George Washington University.  She is a pioneer and international leader in the movement to integrate spirituality into healthcare in clinical settings and medical education.

Grants at the Catholic Foundation of Manitoba support a range of charitable organizations that care for the needy and underprivileged, educate youth, and promote Catholic values within the province of Manitoba. Each year, the Foundation will choose one organization as the Charity of Choice to create awareness to the important work they perform.  A grant will be presented to them at the Dinner.

Charity of Choice 2018 – Holy Names House of Peace, provides a safe home for women in transition, a sacred place for prayer, and reflection space for organizations promoting justice, peace and understanding. There will be a 50/50 style draw at the Dinner.  The proceeds will be disbursed to the draw winner, Charity of Choice and the Catholic Foundation of Manitoba.

About the Dinner

Caritas – the love of God and neighbour which leads to true Christian charity, care and concern. The annual Caritas Award Dinner honours those who have made outstanding contributions towards others and the fabric of life in Manitoba.

The Foundation held the inaugural Caritas Award Dinner in 1979 to honour organizations or individuals who have made outstanding contributions to the well-being of the citizens of the Province of Manitoba, to the Catholic community, or provided exceptional service in support of Catholic values, works and causes. Past recipients include bishops, religious orders, laypersons and other clergy, service organizations and outstanding community leaders.

For the first six years of the Dinner, the proceeds helped to build up the value of the general Capital Fund. Since then, the proceeds of the Caritas Dinner have been used to offset the modest operating costs of the Foundation in order to maximize funds available for grants.

In the course of honouring organizations and individuals who have been exemplars of caring leadership and service in all of Manitoba, the Caritas Dinner has become a time of celebration for Catholics from all dioceses. In so doing, the dinner has become the preeminent celebration of the broader Catholic community in Manitoba.
