Nomination Deadline Extended: 2020 Leading with Faith Awards

Every year, The Catholic Spirit celebrates executives and owners of secular businesses who lead with their Catholic faith with our Leading With Faith Awards. We’ve honored people who have shown Christ-centered leadership in times of plenitude and in times of stress.

More than ever right now, we can show our gratitude to these leaders, who keep their eyes on Christ and serve as an example for everyone. Please lift up these women and men by nominating them for a Leading With Faith Award.

Some criteria:

  • Nominees must live and work at a secular business or organization (not a parish, Catholic school or Catholic institution or entity) within the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis (12-county metro area)
  • Must bear witness to the mission of the Church through their conduct, and be a member of a parish within the archdiocese.
  • Be active in some type of leadership position, such as a business owner, executive, director, manager or supervisor.
  • Nominations must include specific examples of how the nominee lives out the faith in the workplace. If the person making the nomination does not work with the nominee, please include comments from people at the nominee’s workplace, such as a supervisor or coworker.

Deadline Extended: Nominations can be submitted through May 1, 2020.

Nominations may be submitted through the web form or via email at
