EWTN Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Michael P. Warsaw was honored with the Bowie Kuhn Special Award for Evangelization during the 2018 Legatus Summit in Orlando, Fla. The award ceremony was held during the recent annual gathering of Legatus, the world’s premier membership organization for Catholic CEOs and business leaders committed to learning, living and spreading the Catholic faith. Warsaw is a charter member of the Washington, D.C. chapter of Legatus.
The Bowie Kuhn award recognized Warsaw’s role in evangelizing through Catholic media and for being an outstanding Christian witness not only within EWTN, but to the broader community. The award was presented by Legatus Chairman Tom Monaghan, Founder of Domino’s Pizza and Jack McAleer, a member of EWTN’s Board of Governors and Legatus Secretary.
“All of us as Catholics, and particularly those of us in Catholic media, have a responsibility to reach out to the peripheries of society and to address the needs of people who are living in spiritual poverty” said Warsaw, in accepting the award. “Sometimes, that means reaching out and serving people somewhere across the globe, but more often than not it’s about reaching out to our neighbors next door or down the street who are also living in the depths of spiritual poverty and sharing with them the beauty, truth and goodness of the faith.”
Past recipients of the award include Attorney and Philanthropist Tim Busch, of Orange County, California; Curtis Martin, Founder of FOCUS; Thomas Peterson, President and Founder of Catholics Come Home; and Luisa Kuhn, wife of the late Baseball Commissioner Bowie Kuhn, for whom the award is named.
