Sellinger – Chancellor of Education for the Archdiocese of Baltimore.

Our Lady of the Angels Province friar, Fr. Chris Dudek, OFM Conv. was chosen as the Teacher of the Year, not only for our Baltimore, MD high school ministry of Archbishop Curley High School (where he is a theology instructor, Curley’s campus minister and moderator of Franciscan Youth Ministry), but also as the Archdiocesan High School Teacher of the Year. He and Fr. Donald Grzymski, OFM Conv. (school president) concelebrated the Catholic Schools Convocation Mass on Thursday, August 26, 2021, celebrated by Archbishop Lori. The Mass was limited to attendance by those who received “Teacher of the Year” throughout the schools of the Archdiocese of Baltimore, but joyfully the choir from Archbishop Curley was able to provide the music for the Liturgy. Another one of our friars serving at Archbishop Curley, Br. Lawrence LaFlame, OFM Conv. was also recognized for his 5 years of service in the Archdiocese of Baltimore. On May 20, 2021, Friar Chris was surprised on the campus of Archbishop Curley High School. He is pictured here, receiving a new laptop from Archbishop Lori, during the presentation ceremony after the August 26th Mass.
