Salesian Guild to honor Nick Clooney in absentia

CINCINNATI (FOX19) - Veteran broadcaster and activist Nick Clooney will be honored as the Salesian Guild’s Distinguished Communicator of the Year at the group’s annual dinner meeting in Cincinnati on Saturday, Jan. 21. He will receive the award in absentia as he is unable to attend the event.

Media maven Sister Rose Pacatte, FSP, will deliver the keynote address. Sister Rose is director of the Pauline Center for Media Studies in Culver City, CA, movie reviewer for St. Anthony Messenger Magazine, and blogger at “Sister Rose Goes to the Movies” (SisterRosemovies.com). She will discuss some of her favorite movies of the year.

Named for St. Francis de Sales, patron saint of writers, the Salesian Guild is an annual gathering of Greater Cincinnati Catholics working in various communication fields, including journalism, advertising, and public relations. The group, which has no dues, comes together only once a year to share liturgy and fellowship.

This year’s event begins with Vigil Mass at 4:30 p.m. at the Cathedral of St. Peter in Chains in downtown Cincinnati. A reception, dinner, and the program will follow in the Undercroft. The cost is $35. More information and reservations are available by contacting Sean Ater at 513-421-3131 x 2733 or [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]. Reservations are needed by Jan. 7.

The Distinguished Communicator of the Year Award was begun in 1994, on the fiftieth anniversary of the Salesian Guild, to recognize a communications colleague who exhibits professional excellence and faith in action in the workplace.

Nick Clooney, an active parishioner at St. Augustine Church in Augusta, KY, has had a distinguished 45-year career in broadcasting that included news anchor positions in Cincinnati, Los Angeles, Buffalo, and Salt Lake City. He also has hosted a variety show in Cincinnati and a movie show on the American Movie Classics cable network.

In recent years, however, he has devoted much of his energy to calling attention to genocide in Darfur, making countless appearances at schools, churches and service organizations after visiting that troubled land with his son, actor George Clooney.

A great honor for Nick. I do hope that he is okay and just has other commitments on that date.

Maybe Absentia is just too far for him to drive?
