Terry Ginther, the Diocese of Trenton’s executive director for Pastoral Life and Mission, was honored with the 2016 Lumen Gentium Award by the Conference for Pastoral Planning and Council Development. Ginther received the award April 19 in Chicago during the CPPCD’s 43rd annual conference, “Compelled by a Missionary Impulse: Pastoral Planning for a Change of Era.”
The award is presented yearly in recognition of distinguished pastoral leadership and influence on people and Church programs, while raising awareness of the principles of the Second Vatican Council document Lumen Gentium, which instructs the Church to do all in its power to reach the world through liturgy, language, communication and evangelization.
Past recipients of this award include Georgetown University’s Center for Applied Research in the Apostolate (CARA), the Leadership Conference of Women Religious and the Archdiocese of Philadelphia’s Office of Pastoral Planning, among others.
The CPPCD promotes and advocates consultative processes that foster effective planning for the pastoral life of the Church. For more information about the Conference for Pastoral Planning and Council Development, visit www.cppcd.org.[[In-content Ad]]
