The Mother Angelica Award was created to honor an individual or organization that most exemplifies the ideals and characteristics of an apostle of the New Evangelization. It is EWTN’s intention to present this award on an annual basis.
Mother Angelica began EWTN and built the Network to directly address the need and the call of the Holy Father to bring the faith to those in most need of evangelization. Her goal was to bring the faith right into people’s homes and to promote all who were during similar work in line with the true teachings of the Church.
Mother Angelica was a pioneer in the New Evangelization and this award seeks to honor those who worked with that same vigor and spirit to glorify God and to make his son, The Eternal Word, known to all the world.
