Award recipient came from devout Catholic family

Angus Reid came back to B.C. after some time in Winnipeg

Angus Reid was one of five recipients of the Cross Pro Ecclesia et Pontifice after the Mass at the close of the Year of Faith Nov. 24 at Holy Rosary Cathedral. The cross is the highest honour the Pope gives lay people. Reid spoke to The B.C. Catholic about faith in the workplace and why faith-based leadership matters. For full story see The B.C.
