Arlington Bishop Paul S. Loverde presents the Founders Award to Barbara and Tim Murphy of St. Agnes Church in Arlington for their many years of service to Catholic Distance University and to the local Catholic community as Marianne Evans Mount (left), CDU president, and the couple’s son Brian Murphy look on. Thirty years of educating the laity in faith formation and theology was the focus of the Catholic Distance University Nov. 23 gala in Arlington.
Being likened to “the humble grain of the mustard seed” planted 30 years ago, Marianne Evans Mount, CDU president, said that seed continues to foster “an invitation 24 hours a day to the living word of God.” Arlington Bishop Paul S. Loverde, chairman of the CDU board of trustees, gave a blessing and spoke at the event. The bishop praised CDU for its strong mission and for being “an evangelizing voice throughout the world.”
