Holy Savior to receive Inter-Faith Ministries' Humanitarian Award

Holy Savior Catholic Academy is one of five recipients of Inter-Faith Ministries’ Humanitarian Awards, it was announced Wednesday, May 23.

Holy Savior will receive the Spirit of Faith Award, which “recognizes faith-based organizations and groups whose actions exemplify IFM’s vision for people of faith to cross lines of faith and culture to help people in need, to relieve misery and promote justice.”

The award will be presented to Holy Savior during the 60th Humanitarian Awards Dinner, which will be held Aug. 16 at Beech Activity Center, 9710 E. Central.

During a news conference to announce the award recipients, Holy Savior was recognized for its mission to provide a Catholic education to both children from Holy Savior Parish and to children of other faith traditions.

Holy Savior Academy strives “for a first class facility located in the heart of the inner city that provides a quality, value-based and culturally sensitive education,” Jill Docking, chair of the awards dinner, said during the news conference at Inter-Faith Ministries, 829 N. Market.  “HSCA works to give students, who may not otherwise be able, the opportunity to attend a private faith-based school.”

Of the students who attend Holy Savior, about 80 percent are of faith traditions other than Catholic, about 85 percent are African –American, and more than 70 percent qualify for free or reduced-cost lunches.

Other Humanitarian Award recipients are:  Wichita Cargill Cares Council, Golden Rule Award; Jack Focht and Gloria Farha Flentje, Leadership through Faith Award; Dr. Tamim Qaum, Light of Faith Award; and David and Lynn Gilkey, Peace by Piece Award.

"This award is one of the highest honors an institution like Holy Savior Catholic Academy could ever receive because the Spirit of Faith Award embodies who we are as church and school," said Delia Shropshire, principal of Holy Savior Academy. "We are called to serve and live out the mission of Jesus Christ through a tiny vehicle called Holy Savior Catholic Academy. As one looks back over Salvation History, it is God's way to use the tiniest of vessels to accomplish His greatest works. We are ever so humbled to be of service for His glory and that Inter-Faith Ministries selected us for this great honor."

This marks the 60th year that the Humanitarian Awards have been presented.  Inter-Faith Ministries restored the recognition event, which was last held in 2009 by Diversity Kansas.  The Humanitarian Awards were first presented in 1951 in Wichita, when the Wichita chapter of the National Conference of Christian and Jews recognized Bishop Mark K. Carroll of the Catholic Diocese of Wichita.  Since then, nearly 170 Humanitarian Awards have been presented to individuals and organizations.

Prior to the news conference, Ms. Shropshire and Fr. Jim Billinger were interviewed by Stephanie Bergmann, a KSN, Channel 3 news anchor and reporter, about the award.  Portions of their interviews, along with video of the some students, will be shown during the awards dinner.

The Humanitarian Awards Dinner will begin with a reception at 6 p.m., and the dinner at 7 p.m. with the program following.  For tickets, contact Inter-Faith Ministries at 316-264-9303.
