Catholic Athletes for Christ (CAC) honored Ms. Aurora Griffin, former U-18 national champion in equestrian show jumping, with its annual Courage Award at an awards ceremony held at Marymount University in Arlington, Va., on April 23. Ms. Griffin was honored for her courageous efforts in leading the protest of the Satanic “Black Mass” on the campus at Harvard University during his senior year at the school. The event was initially taken off campus but ultimately canceled. She also recently published a book titled, “How I Stayed Catholic at Harvard: Forty Tips for Faithful College Students“.
In addition to honoring Ms. Griffin, CAC also recognized a senior male and female student-athlete from each of the five Catholic high schools and two Catholic colleges located within the Arlington Diocese for their academic, athletic, and Catholic service activities.
Highlighting the event was the participation of the newly installed bishop of the Arlington Diocese, the Most Reverend Michael F. Burbidge, who has been a long-time supporter of CAC and is a member of the organization’s Episcopal Board.
