.- At Catholic Charities USA’s recent 100th anniversary celebration, the group honored several Catholic leaders with specially commissioned Centennial Medals, noting the individuals’ commitment to the mission of the organization.

Last month, the group held its Centennial Gathering in Washington D.C. and recognized several prominent Catholic figures for sharing the vision of the charitable agency. 

Recipients of the Centennial Medal included Cardinal Francis George, president of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops; Bishop William Skylstad, Catholic Charities USA Episcopal Liaison from 2000-2002; as well as Bishop Michael Driscoll, Catholic Charities USA Episcopal Liaison from 2002 to the present.

Other groups honored by Catholic Charities USA were Caritas Internationalis and the Pontifical Council Cor Unum, the Vatican organization which oversees the Church's charitable activities throughout the globe.

The Sept. 25-28 celebration included several noted events, such as an opening liturgy celebrated by Cardinal Francis George, a keynote address by Archbishop Timothy Dolan of New York, talks from international Catholic leaders, a gala concert, and a day spent on Capitol Hill in dialogue with congressional staff.
