.- A philanthropic mother of ten and grandmother of 28 will be honored for her work at the upcoming Tenth Annual Awards for Outstanding Catholic Leadership. The Catholic Leadership Institute (CLI) will present the award to Barbara Henkels on Nov. 13 in Drexel Hill, Penn.

CLI reports that Mrs. Henkels, with her late husband Paul, has worked “tirelessly” to promote “authentic Catholic education.” She has helped found two private Catholic elementary schools in the Philadelphia area and is a founding board member of Ave Maria University in Florida.

Mrs. Henkels also has served on a number of Catholic leadership boards, such as those of Cabrini College, St. Thomas Aquinas College and International Legatus. She is a past recipient of the Pro Ecclesia et Pontifice papal medal and the Philopatrian St. John Newman Medal.

“Barbara's commitment to Catholic leadership has inspired those in her hometown, the country and the world,” CLI said.

The institute will also honor Archbishop of Galveston-Houston Cardinal Daniel DiNardo, internationally known retreat leader for priests Sr. Briege McKenna, OSC, and former U.S. Vatican Ambassador James Nicholson.
