University of St. Thomas in Houston to Honor Cardinal DiNardo

The University of St. Thomas in Houston, Tex., has announced plans to honor Cardinal Daniel DiNardo of the Galveston-Houston Archdiocese at its annual Mardi Gras Gala, according to the University.

Cardinal DiNardo, who earned his master’s degree from Newman Guide-recommended Catholic University of America, was named the coadjutor archbishop of the Galveston-Houston Archdiocese in 2004 and was elevated to the College of Cardinals in 2007, according to the Archdiocese’s website.

The University reports:

This year’s honoree, Daniel Cardinal DiNardo, is recognized for his work throughout the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston during the past 10 years. Outside Houston, DiNardo continues his service to the Catholic Church, recently serving as a Cardinal-Elector in the Papal Conclave of 2013. His brother bishops also selected him as the Vice-President of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.

“We are very fortunate to have Cardinal DiNardo on our Board of Directors and gratefully recognize his contributions to UST and to the entire Catholic community for the past 10 years,” said Dr. Robert Ivany, St. Thomas President.

The Gala is the University’s “premier scholarship fundraising event” which has at its heart the “University’s commitment to providing students with a religious and ethical values-based education, while ensuring it is affordable.” 

The University of St. Thomas is recommended in The Newman Guide for strong Catholic identity.
