Aquinas Institute Of Theology Will Honor The Most Reverend J. Terry Steib, S.V.D, Bishop Of Memphis, With Great Preacher Award
Aquinas Institute of Theology is pleased to honor the Most Reverend J. Terry Steib, S.V.D, the bishop of the Catholic diocese of Memphis, as the 2012 recipient of its annual Great Preacher Award. The Award will be presented to Bishop Steib on October 25, 2012, in St. Louis.
Aquinas Institute, a ministry of the Province of St. Albert the Great, instituted the Great Preacher Award in 1995 to recognize those who by their words and actions have contributed in an outstanding way to the building up of the Catholic community. Aquinas Institute considers the Great Preacher Award a powerful means of renewing the Church and promoting good preaching while sharing its Dominican charism. The award is intended not only to sustain preachers of the Word but also to help Catholics become more attuned to hearing the Word.
