US Catholic Bishops Honor UD grad

This week, the bishops will honor Sr. Tracey Horan, the 2017 Cardinal Bernardin New Leadership Award winner, during their annual Spring General Assembly. Sr. Horan is a mission novice with the Sisters of Providence of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods, Indiana. She currently serves as a community organizer for the Indianapolis Congregation Action Network (ICAN) and the Justice for Immigrants Campaign of the Archdiocese of Indianapolis. In these roles, she works to promote the common good alongside immigrants, returning citizens and people living in poverty. A graduate of the University of Dayton, Sr. Horan is a former intern at White Violet Center for Eco-Justice, a ministry of the Sisters of Providence, and has taught middle school children at St. Pius X Catholic School in El Paso, Texas while living with Sisters of Charity at Casa de Caridad in New Mexico.

In celebration of the work of the Holy Spirit through Catholic young adults involved in anti-poverty work, please join us in prayers of thanksgiving for Sr. Tracey and all past winners of this award. The annual Cardinal Bernardin New Leadership Award is sponsored by the Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD) and honors a Catholic between the age of 18 and 40 who demonstrates leadership in fighting poverty and injustice in the United States through community-based solutions
