At the 2016 Joliet Diocesan Council of Catholic Women Biennial Convention, the Father John M. Sebahar Servant Leadership Award was established as a tribute of gratitude to Father Sebahar for his many years of spiritual guidance and support to the council.
This award will present $500 to two high school seniors who will attend a college or university this coming fall. The student must be nominated by a religious education department chair, youth minister, campus ministry chair or rirector of pastoral ministry from a parish or Catholic High School in the Joliet diocese. This award will be presented to two students who have shown their sincere dedication to their Catholic faith through their spirit, words and actions.
The Father John M. Sebahar Leadership Service Award will be presented to the recipients by Father Sebahar, after a Mass at the Blanchette Catholic Center on June 1, 2023.
Nominations are due April 3.
