Twenty-seven people received Lambeth Awards April 4 from the Archbishop of Canterbury.

The Lambeth Awards, launched by Abp. Justin Welby in 2016, recognize outstanding service in different fields, including those of the archbishop’s ministry priorities of prayer and the monastic life; reconciliation and peace-building; and evangelism and witness.

“It is a great honor to present the Lambeth Awards again this year. As we look around our world today, we could be tempted to despair at the injustice, inequality, and suffering that so many people are enduring,” Archbishop Welby said. “But our faith in God, and in our Savior Jesus Christ, teaches us that there is always hope.

“The tireless work of these men and women for justice, peace, and reconciliation is a great source of such hope. Praise God for those whose lives are dedicated to serving his purposes.”
