ALLOUEZ — During a May address to the Centesimus Annus Pro Pontifice Foundation, an organization designed to promote Catholic social doctrine, Pope Francis spoke about ethics in the marketplace.Faith-That-Works-logos

“We have forgotten and are still forgetting that over and above business, logic and the parameters of the market is the human being; and that something is men and women in as much as they are human beings by virtue of their profound dignity: to offer them the possibility of living a dignified life and of actively participating in the common good,” said Pope Francis. “… We must return to the centrality of the human being, to a more ethical vision of activities and of human relationships without the fear of losing something.”

To recognize those in business who promote the common good, The Compass invites readers and parish leadership to nominate candidates for the inaugural “Faith That Works” Awards. Nominees must be currently employed in the 16-county area of the Diocese of Green Bay, an active parish member and involved in at least two parish or spiritually-based community programs or organizations. A panel of judges will select honorees from both profit and non-profit organizations who make a positive difference in their parishes and local communities.

“It’s a nice opportunity to recognize extremely ethical Catholic business owners and leaders who are committed to building faith into their professional lives,” said Amy Kawula, Compass advertising and marketing manager. “We have so many leaders in our diocese who use their resources to help others and promote the faith through their practices.”

Nominations must be submitted by Dec. 31, 2013. Award recipients will be notified in February of 2014. In addition to being featured in a special section in the April 4, 2014, edition of The Compass, the award winners will also be invited to a Mass and breakfast reception with Bishop David Ricken on April 11, 2014.

“Faith That Works” will be offered annually. Nominees not selected this year will be kept on file for two additional years of consideration.
