Robert E. Guglielmone · Leadership in Diversity Award

The Sisters of Charity Foundation of South Carolina believes diverse voices should be present, active, listened to and valued. As part of its ongoing commitment to its values, each year it recognizes an individual or organization that illustrates exemplary performance in the areas of diversity, equity, and inclusion with its Leadership in Diversity Award. This year the award went to an individual who embodies all these qualities and more, The Most Reverend Robert E. Guglielmone. Bishop Guglielmone is a true believer in diversity, equity, and inclusion.

The Most Reverend Robert E. Guglielmone was ordained and installed as the 13th Bishop of Charleston on March 25, 2009 in the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist. Feeling the call to the priesthood, Bishop Guglielmone entered the seminary for the Diocese of Rockville Centre. He earned a Master of Divinity at Immaculate Conception Seminary in 1977 and was ordained a priest of the Diocese of Rockville Centre on April 8, 1978 and was assigned to St. Martin of Tours in Amityville for his first priestly ministry after ordination. He later served as a priest in parishes across Long Island, most recently as Rector of St Agnes Cathedral in Rockville Centre.
