Archbishop Bernadito Auza, Apostolic Nuncio and Permanent Observer of the Holy See to the United Nations announces that honorees of the 2015 Servitor Pacis Award are Bob and Linda Simpson of Fort Myers, Florida.
The Servitor Pacis Award by custom is awarded at the United Nations each year but will be awarded in Fort Myers on December 5, 2015 at the Florida Path to Peace Gala.
"The annual Path to Peace Award is bestowed on individuals in recognition of their commitment to the development of peace and human progress in the local, national and international arenas. It is also important to recognize persons from that magnificent legion of often unsung heroes, men and women who spend their lives being where the need is greater, where the wounds are festering and where there is pain and hopelessness. Such men and women are truly Servitores Pacis, "Servants of Peace." To these beacons of hope an award by the same name is given: "Servitor Pacis." Archbishop Auza remarked, "Bob and Linda's efforts, love and concern for our brothers and sisters in need
are examples for all of us. Their work in Central and South American is a testament of their love and concern for others. Their involvement in so many works of mercy in their own community is the reason for this award to be presented locally. I myself am honored to recognize these remarkable people as a sign ofhope for these times."
The Path to Peace Foundation is a 501 (c) (3) charitable organization. Contributions are tax deductible as permitted by law.
