Monsignor Lawrence Corcoran

Monsignor Corcoran’s distinguished career spanned several decades and included work at the national, state and local levels in the areas of education, social justice and mental health. At the national level, he served as President of Catholic Charities USA helping to lead its efforts to impact public policy and embrace social justice causes. He participated on the front lines of the civil rights movement in 1965; taking part in the final days of the Selma marches.  Locally he is credited as a founder of several social service agencies including Maryhaven and Diocesan Child Guidance Center, which merged with St. Vincent Children’s Center in 1996 to become St. Vincent Family Center.

Celebrating the life’s work of Monsignor Lawrence Corcoran, our founder and friend, St. Vincent Family Center honors three persons working in the fields of:  Behavioral Health & Education, Charity & Social Justice and Young Leadership.  The awards will be presented during the annual luncheon honoring the recipients.  In addition to the Corcoran Awards being received, another award is also given to a special corporation for its work with St. Vincent Family Center.
