Most Reverend Robert J. Carlson, Archbishop of St. Louis, celebrated the annual Mass for the Preservation of Peace and Justice at 2:30 p.m. on Sunday, January 14, the day before the observation of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. Father Arthur Cavitt, Executive Director of the Archdiocese of St. Louis’ St. Charles Lwanga Center, a Catholic ministry rooted in the African-American community, delivered the homily. This marks the archdiocese’s 42nd annual commemoration of the birth and legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr.

A reception and awards presentation ceremony for the 11th annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Model of Justice Honorees took place in Boland Hall after Mass. Senior Geneace Adams was Incarnate Word Academy’s recipient of the award. Hannah Moll '15, received this honor in 2015 and was invited to be the keynote speaker at this year's awards ceremony.  Hannah said that her award had led her to pursue her present studies in peace and justice.  She is now a junior at St. Louis University.  IWA is very proud of these two Women of the WORD!
