Here is what the citation looks like:

Patrick Augustine’s journey of faith began in Pakistan as a third generation Anglican cleric in a primarily Muslim society. Having studied political science and English literature at Punjab University, he then took a Diploma in Theology at Lahore Divinity School. For two years, he served as General Secretary of the Student Christian Movement of Pakistan and subsequently became an Army Chaplain.

His interest in ecumenism took its roots during the 1970s when he attended the World Council of Churches Assembly in Nairobi, Kenya, to be followed within twelve months by the World Student Christian Federation General Assembly in Sri Lanka. Shortly afterwards, he participated at an International Retreat in Taizé, France, and, subsequently, at Ecumenical Seminars in Geneva. His attendance at these gatherings underlined his commitment to the search for unity amongst Christians and, importantly, gave rise to a lifelong commitment to defend the free exercise of faith in countries where believers are marginalized and persecuted.

His move to the United States in 1983 opened up other opportunities for priestly service at parochial, diocesan and national levels within a new and diverse cultural environment. He continued to travel extensively, promoting evangelism and world mission, fostering inter-faith dialogue and ecumenical endeavour. Described by fellow Christians in Sudan as an “Ambassador of Peace” and a “Voice for the Voiceless”, he has brought hope and reconciliation to communities far and wide which have endured decades of conflict, violence, poverty and persecution. His care, compassion and concern, rooted firmly in his own faith and belief, remind us powerfully of our common humanity.

I am delighted to make this award to Patrick Augustine in recognition of his contribution at national and international level to the promotion of evangelism, ecumenism and the free exercise of faith.
