Catholic Theological Union was pleased to confer its 2012 Blessed are the Peacemakers Award on Renée and Lester Crown, and Shirley and Patrick Ryan, for their efforts in promoting mutual respect and understanding among the Abrahamic faiths. In 2003, the Crown and Ryan families, longtime friends of CTU, endowed a Chair in Jewish Studies at CTU to further the work of reconciliation and dialogue.

On June 20, nearly 400 guests gathered for the annual Blessed Are The Peacemakers dinner to celebrate the esteemed 2012 award recipients. In addition to being business and civic leaders, Renée and Lester Crown, and Shirley and Patrick Ryan, have actively promoted interfaith understanding, a hallmark of CTU's mission.

"This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Second Vatican Council and one of its most groundbreaking actions, the decree Nostra Aetate, which initiated a new path of reconciliation between the Catholic Church, Judaism and other non-Christian religions," said Fr. Donald Senior, CP, President of Catholic Theological Union. "Therefore we felt that this was an ideal time for CTU to give the Blessed are the Peacemakers Award to our esteemed partners in mission who have done so much locally and globally to foster peaceful relations among the faiths."
