The 2022 Dare to Understand Awards

On May 12, 2022, more than 150 people from the Philadelphia region gathered with Interfaith Philadelphia to highlight the contribution of the Catholic community to interfaith work and celebrate two of our home-grown heroes, Monsignor Michael Carroll and Sister Maria Hornung, MMS.


In 2022, we turned our focus to the untold stories, the seemingly ordinary yet extraordinarily significant actions of our local leaders. Msgr. Carroll and Sr. Maria contributed to the foundational components of Philadelphia’s bridges to understanding, the bridges over which we still walk, often without noticing.  The Awards program also featured 2022 Philadelphia Poet Laureate, Airea Dee Matthews!  Check out the photos and video below to see and hear more from this special event.
