The Chancellor’s Award affirms the saintly example of our Society’s patron in his faith-based approach to the engagement of faith and culture.
As Blessed John Paul II said of him, “St. Thomas More … distinguished himself by his constant fidelity to legitimate authority and institutions precisely in his intention to serve not power but the supreme ideal of justice. His life teaches us that government is above all an exercise of virtue.”
The Chancellor’s Award recognizes an individual whose life and legal work reflect the exercise of virtue in the service of political, social, and/or religious institutions.
The Chancellor's Award is usually bestowed at a dinner celebration each May.
