The annual dinner in honor of the John Paul II Award for the New Evangelization is held towards the end of October at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington DC. Recipients of the John Paul II New Evangelization Award demonstrate an exemplary commitment to proclaiming Christ to the world.

This year’s annual dinner will be held in person on Thursday, October 21, 2021.

This year, the CIC is proud to honor Jeanne Mancini, President of the March for Life Education and Defense Fund. Through her devoted leadership and public engagement in the pro-life arena, Jeanne has been a fearless and persistent advocate of the inherent dignity of every human person, which reflects God’s love for us. Her witness is an inspiration to so many people in our country who actively work to transform our society into a place where the protection of life, from conception to natural death, becomes a fundamental and inalienable right. She is an exemplar of the evangelical mission of the Church as envisioned by St. John Paul II.
