Bishop Cote Announces New Award to Honor a Diocesan Woman

In recognition of the 10th anniversary of the Diocesan Women’s Conference, Bishop Michael R. Cote announces the Our Lady, Queen of Hope Award to honor a woman in the diocese for her vision and leadership in the Catholic Church. The award is named after Mary, our Mother, who is our role model and in whom we place our trust. It will be distributed each year to a woman of faith in the diocese during the Annual Diocesan Women’s Conference.

The winner will be presented with a plaque and a check for $200 payable to the charity or ministry of her choice. The recipient will also have her name inscribed on a plaque to be hung at the Cathedral of St. Patrick in Norwich.

Award nominees should display the following attributes: strong faith, commitment to living out Catholic/Christian values, spiritual leadership at the local or diocesan level, and a spirit of love and service to the Catholic Church. She also has been part of successful initiatives that benefit the church and has moved her parish community forward through her vision.

The award winner will be determined by the Women’s Conference Committee. The nomination form (CLICK HERE) must be completed in full by JANUARY 22, 2021. Contact the Office of Faith Events with any questions or concerns 860-848-2237, ext. 304 or manicholas@norwichdiocese.net.
