Bernardin Medal

This year we are honoring the Rev. Dennis Holtschneider, CM, EdD with the Bernardin Medal. As the President of DePaul University for over 12 years, he has made a significant contribution to the life of the city and Church of Chicago and embodies Amate House's core values of faith, service and community.

Founder’s Award

We will also be honoring Carrie Crook, Amate House Alumna from the 1996-1997 Volunteer year with the Founder's Award. Carrie served at St. James Church, running their food pantry program during her year of service and she is celebrating her 20 year Amate House reunion this year. She has continued to live a life of service both in her professional life and personal life, putting Love into Action every day.
