CTU will honor Monica McWilliams with our 2017 Blessed are the Peacemakers award for her tireless witness for peace in Northern Ireland, her efforts to combat domestic violence, and her current involvement with the pressing humanitarian crisis of international refugees. The award is presented annually to an individual or institution whose accomplishments and commitments embody the mission of CTU, particularly in the areas of reconciliation, justice, and peacemaking.
Rev. Dennis Holtschneider, CM, president of DePaul University, will be presented with our annual Diakonia award, given to outstanding local leaders who have given exemplary service to the larger Chicago community.  Fr. Dennis was chosen for his superb record as chief administrator of DePaul University; for his cultivation of an alliance between our two institutions; for his untiring work for inter-religious dialogue in Chicago; and for DePaul’s attention to DACA students in higher education, exemplifying the best of the Catholic Social Teaching.
