The Pontifical Catholic University of Puerto Rico has awarded an honorary doctoral degree to St. Paul Center Founder, Dr. Scott Hahn.
Marcelina Velez de Santiago, President of the University, said the award recognizes Dr. Hahn's "outstanding service to Catholic education through the dissemination of our faith and values."
In a letter to Dr. Hahn, she added: "The unique way that you live an profess your Catholic faith is amodel."
Dr. Hahn accepted the honorary degree in a May 28 ceremony at the Pontifical Universit y. He was joined by his wife, Kimberly, and (left to right): Bishop Felix Lazaro-Martinez of Ponce, Grand Chancellor of the University; Bishop Ulises Casiano-Vargas of Mayaguez, Chairman of the Board of Trustees; and University Trustee, Bishop Inaki Mallona of Arecibo.
"I'm grateful for the award," Dr. Hahn said. "But I see this as less of an honor to me personally than it is a recognition that our work at the St. Paul Center is bearing real fruits that can be seen throughout the universal Church."
