Vatican to honor radio-show host

Bishop Matthew Clark will present the prestigious Benemerenti Medal to Richard Gladwell, host and producer of WXXI’s nationally syndicated radio program of Western sacred music, “With Heart and Voice.”

The Vatican confers the Benemerenti Medal on those who have exhibited long and exceptional service to their community. Bishop Clark wrote to the Vatican to ask that the award be given to Gladwell, whose program has inspired and moved generations of listeners.

Gladwell will receive the medal during a special concert at Sacred Heart Cathedral, 296 Flower City Park, Rochester, on March 29. Choirs and musicians from several area churches and officials from WXXI and other organizations will perform. The 2 p.m. event is free and open to the public, and will be followed by a reception.
