Dr. Woodrow Smith Jr. National Community Service Award Recipient

The tangible expression of an individual’s Christian faith can be measured by the difference one makes in the world with their life. This sentiment was express by Martin Luther King when he said, “Service is the rent we pay for the space we occupy.” As a fellowship laboring to make our church a force for good in the world, we in the Shrine of the Black Madonna believe service is the highest praise. Rooted in the belief in the equality of souls, we are dedicated to creating a world where the divine value of all human beings is accepted, respected and protected. While all our members are urged to be involved in community service, there are some who by their exemplary service have distinguished themselves and profoundly enhanced our ministry. Therefore, these shining examples of service have been selected for recognition and appreciation during our Anniversary Month as a celebration of our mission and tradition. Recipients of this award exemplify the words of our founder and first Holy Patriarch, Jaramogi Abebe Agyeman, “Everything I have done with my life, I did because I was a Christian.”
