Pro-life awards

Jeannine Sinak received the Cardinal Carberry Award at the 50th anniversary Respect Life Conference held Oct. 15 at the Cardinal Rigali Center in Shrewsbury. The award is presented annually to an individual(s) who has made a significant contribution to the pro-life movement. The honor is named after the late Cardinal Carberry, who started the archdiocesan Pro-Life Committee in St. Louis — the first in the nation — after the Roe vs. Wade decision in 1973. Sinak is a parishioner at Queen of All Saints in Oakville, where she has served as a longtime pro-life coordinator. She also has served on the executive board of the Respect Life Apostolate, assists with organizing various pro-life events around the archdiocese and has been instrumental in bringing youths to Washington, D.C., for the March for Life.

Several people also were recognized with the Friend of Life Award, which is given to individuals who are doing extraordinary work in their pro-life ministries, most often at the parish level:

Amy Kosta, a parishioner at St. Francis of Assisi in Oakville, for her involvement in various ministries, including parish youth ministry, the St. Louis chapter of Life Runners and the archdiocese’s Abortion Healing Ministry retreat team. As a past staff member of the Respect Life Apostolate, Kosta served as coordinator of the Our Lady of Guadalupe convent.

William Durbin, a parishioner of St. Clare of Assisi in Ellisville, for his service as a parish pro-life coordinator and as state co-director of Life Chain. Even in retirement, Durbin continues to assist parishes in the archdiocese and across the state to become involved in the ecumenical, pro-life prayer event.
