Justin Katz to Receive Prestigious “Lumen Gentium” Award from the Diocese of Providence

Providence, RI — Referring to his work as “subtle evangelism,” Justin Katz will be honored this Wednesday evening by the Diocese of Providence with the fifth-annual “Lumen Gentium” award for communication of the Catholic faith at the Twin River Event Center in Lincoln, Rhode Island.. Translated as “Light of the Nations,” the prestigious award will be presented to Katz, who serves as research director for the RI Center for Freedom & Prosperity and editor of its online journalism website, The Ocean State Current.

“Articulating the beautiful logic and practical wisdom of a worldview rooted in Catholic belief and tradition can be the force of revelation,” said Katz. The award for Katz coincides with and complements the Center’s recent “family prosperity” initiative, which takes into account social and cultural issues, along with economic and demographic factors, when considering overall family well-being and public policy. Religiosity, or church attendance, is one of dozens of factors that make up the Family Prosperity Index, in which Rhode Island ranked a dismal 48th in 2016.


Rhode Islanders need a credible alternative to the status quo and its destructive progressive ideas. You can help.

“We congratulate Justin for his great honor. It was his steadfast belief that social and religious issues cannot be separated from economic issues that led to the revelation that our Center should adopt the more holistic Family Prosperity Initiative as the central core of our policy advocacy moving forward,” said Mike Stenhouse, CEO for the Center.
