Hosted by the Office of Black Ministry (OBM) of the Archdiocese of New York, the evening recognized the accomplishments of past and present Pierre Toussaint Scholars in addition to recipients of the Pierre Toussaint Medallion for their positive leadership and extraordinary efforts in support of life, human rights, social justice, spiritual values and quality education for all.
Among the recipients this year was Msgr. Kevin Sullivan, Executive Director of the Catholic Charities in New York.
Br. Tyrone Davis, C.F.C., J.D., Executive Director of the Office of Black Ministry, has become a proud supporter of REACH and Regis High School in recent years, attending numerous REACH events and often volunteering as a guest lecturer to speak on themes of faith, service, and leadership. Br. Davis generously donated a table at the event to the REACH program. The students in attendance were honored to be among such fine company, including a brief dinner conversation with His Eminence Timothy Cardinal Dolan, Archbishop of New York.
