Lumen Gentium, considered the central document of the Second Vatican Council, begins with the proclamation “Christ is the light of the nations.” The document considers how each of the Church’s members (laity, religious and clergy) is called by God to bear Christ’s light to the nations.
On May 16, 2018, the Diocese of Providence will host the Sixth Annual Lumen Gentium Awards Dinner. The purpose of this event is to honor individuals who have made significant contributions to the life of the Church in the Diocese of Providence. The award recipients have been identified as outstanding men and women whose service and personal holiness testify to Christ’s presence in His Church as well as His concern for the well-being and salvation of the world.
Our Lord tells us, “You are the light of the world” (St. Matthew 5:14). This award recognizes that light shining in the lives of these individuals, a light proclaiming Christ – the light of the nations.
