The 2024 Rey of Light Award Recipient is His Eminence, Wilton Cardinal Gregory who brought the vision of a Cristo Rey school to Atlanta. When Cardinal Gregory came to Atlanta in 2004, he knew he wanted to create educational equality in Catholic education and he was ready to support that ambitious goal. His desire to provide an excellent, college-prep Catholic secondary education to the youth of Atlanta was realized in 2014 when the doors of Cristo Rey Atlanta Jesuit High School opened to 164 freshmen. Since that time, 739 students have benefitted from his audacious wisdom and gracious leadership as they have achieved their high school diplomas and 100% college acceptance. As those same alumni graduate from college and become professionals in metro Atlanta, Cardinal Gregory’s vision is manifested and advancing transformational change within our community.
