Catholic Leadership Institute (CLI) and more than 650 individuals from around the country gathered to honor Dr. Rosalie Mirenda, Mother Mary Assumpta Long, O.P., Matthew Kelly and Msgr. Bob McDermott on Friday, November 12 at the 2010 Awards for Outstanding Catholic Leadership. 

For the first time in the event’s 11 year history a sell-out crowd of bishops, priests, religious and national Catholic leaders from around the country celebrated Catholic leadership with a dinner and awards reception in Drexel Hill, PA. Catholic Leadership Institute recognized Dr. Rosalie Mirenda, president of Neumann University; Mother Mary Assumpta Long, O.P., co-foundress and prioress general of the Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist; Matthew Kelly, internationally recognized speaker and bestselling author; and Msgr. Bob McDermott, founder of the St. Joseph’s Carpenter Society, Romero Center and vicar general of the Diocese of Camden.

These individuals have taken their God-given gifts and talents and gone out and transformed the world and in turn become outstanding Catholic leaders and role models.  Each of the honorees is a true testament to the peace, love and joy that comes from living a life devoted to the Lord,” said Timothy C. Flanagan, founder and chair of Catholic Leadership Institute.

CLI developed the Awards for Outstanding Catholic Leadership in 2000 to recognize people in the Catholic Church whose exemplary leadership in the family, the workplace, the community and the Church has been inspired by their Catholic faith. 

Founded in 1991, the Catholic Leadership Institute (CLI) is an organization of lay Catholics whose mission is to build Catholic leaders for today and tomorrow. To date, CLI has helped over 9,000 priests, seminarians, lay and religious leaders, young adult and campus leaders, to discover their mission in life and fulfill their God-given potential.  Catholic Leadership Institute combines the very best in leadership and personal development programs from academia and the corporate world with the teachings of Jesus Christ and the Catholic Church.
