Pontifical Georgian College awards honorary doctorates to humanitarians

(ORCNS) - The principal and historic seminary of the Patriarchal See of Saint Stephen, Pontifical Georgian College, has awarded honorary doctorates to two humanitarians, the Prince von Reichenberg and the Baroness von dem Cherso. The college's honorary degree is Doctor of Sacred Letters. Both recipients have a long history of charitable service, both in and out of church settings.

The college awards honorary degrees from time to time upon selected individuals who set themselves apart from their fellows through high achievement and selfless service to others and whose personal values are consistent with the college and the Church.
