Michael P. Warsaw, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of EWTN, announced that EWTN will present its first annual Mother Angelica Award in a ceremony that will be televised Aug. 15, the Solemnity of the Assumption and the 40th Anniversary of EWTN’s launch.
“Not long after Mother’s death, I felt very strongly that there needed to be some recognition, created in her name, that would honor individuals who, by their lives and service, have advanced the cause of the New Evangelization, just as Mother did throughout her life,” Warsaw said.
“Through the years, we’ve been blessed to have so many incredible people work with us, people who, like Mother herself, have been witnesses to God’s Providence in all they have done in service to the Church. And so we created The Mother Angelica Award. This annual presentation will recognize individuals who, like Mother Angelica, seek to bring others to a deeper knowledge of God’s love and trust in His Providence.”
