Spirit of Francis Award Dinner
The Catholic Extension Spirit of Francis Award recognizes an individual or group that has made a significant impact on the mission of the Catholic Church in America through service or philanthropy.
In addition to the Spirit of Francis Award, Catholic Extension has been delegated by Pope Francis to present each couple with an inspirational medal called the “Pro Ecclesia et Pontifice.” This is the highest medal conferred by the Pope on laity and is given in appreciation for the awardees’ lifelong and distinguished service to the church, and will be presented by Cardinal Blase Cupich.

Catholic Extension builds churches and the Church in America's poorest places. Since 1905 Catholic Extension has been building up and strengthening Catholic faith communities across America by providing funding and resources to poor churches to unleash the transformative power of faith. With the generosity of individual donors and local and national foundations, we raise funds to help these poor, forgotten and often isolated communities flourish. Catholic Extension is a papal society that is answering Pope Francis' call to go out to America's "peripheries." Since its founding, Catholic Extension has distributed more than $1.2 billion in today's dollars to dioceses that cannot support themselves.
