Monsignor Daniel Turley Murphy OSA, bishop of Chulucanas
The Ministry for the Rights of Women and for Social Development in Peru (MIMDES) created the "Peace Prize", given each year, to promote efforts in favor of eliminating disequality in society and the building of a culture of peace. This year, two people were chosen to receive the award - one of them an Augustinian bishop. Mons. Daniel Turley, O.S.A., bishop of Chulucanas, was chosen in recognition of his outstanding leadership in "Alto Piura" (the northern part of the Department of Piura, Peru) for his work in defending the environment and in seeking just and respectful solutions to the various conflicts present in the region, thus promoting a true Culture of Peace.
The award will be presented in the Auditorium of Petro Peru in San Isidro, Lima, on September 21st.
