The Sisters of St. Agnes received an award at the 2018 Treasures of the Church lenten luncheon in Sheboygan, Wisconsin. Archbishop Jerome Listecki, Archbishop of Milwaukee, recognized those who exemplify the true treasures of the church in their commitment and response to the poor in our midst. The Lenten Luncheon is a wonderful time to come together for prayer, and a simple lunch of soup and bread while acknowledging the award recipients for bringing hope and help to individuals struggling with poverty.

On December 11, 2017 The Leo House sponsored its Inaugural Pope Leo XIII Award Fundraising Gala.
Thanks to the Archdiocese of Chicago, the Leo XIII Award, originally given out each year by Auxiliary Bishop Sheil until his death in 1969, was transferred to The Leo House during the fundraising event. Representing the Archdiocese of Chicago were Father James Heyd and Father George Clements.
The 2017 inaugural award was given to Timothy Cardinal Dolan, but due to sudden illness, Auxiliary Bishop John O’Hara of New York accepted the award for him.
Eight Sisters of Saint Agnes were among the 230 guests in attendance at the Yale Club and were introduced by keynote speaker, Father James Martin.
A six-minute documentary video was created for the event describing the founding of The Leo House for German immigrants, and was created by filmmaker, Jennifer Takaki, shown on the right in the 10th photo. To her left is David Ernst, a Gala Consultant, and on the far left is Leo House Board Member Mark Houlihan, and his wife Amy. For a direct link to the video, click HERE.
