Servant Leadership Award for Education given to Father Ron Rolheiser, OMI

Sister Linda Marie, SSCM, and Sister Susan Pontz, SSCM, recently presented Father Ronald Rolheiser, OMI, with the 2020 Father Matthew Jankola Lifetime Servant Leadership Award for Education.

The presentation, which took place during a Faculty Colloquium at Oblate School of Theology, was delayed because of COVID-19. The award was originally announced at a virtual ceremony on Oct. 25, 2020, where the Sisters of Saints Cyril and Methodius honored 27 teens who actively serve in their parish, school and community, and four adults who received the Father Matthew Jankola Lifetime Servant Leadership Award in the ministries of evangelization, education, elder care and ecumenism.

Father Rolheiser is a community-builder, lecturer, and writer. His books are popular throughout the English-speaking world and have now been translated into many languages. His weekly column is carried by more than 80 newspapers worldwide. Along with his academic knowledge in systematic theology and philosophy, he has become a popular speaker in the areas of contemporary spirituality and religion and the secular world. Before becoming president of Oblate School of Theology, he taught theology and philosophy at Newman Theological College in Edmonton, Alberta, served as provincial superior of his Oblate Province for six years, and served on the General Council for the Oblates in Rome for six years. He has been at Oblate School of Theology since 2005. Sisters Linda Marie and Susan Pontz both serve on the Faculty of Oblate.
