The ACP Henry Hyde Award is given to someone who has provided distinctive and distinguished support for the pro-life cause.

In 2015, this award is rightly conferred on Roberta Magurany. For 27 years, she has been the administrator of Holy Family Villa in Palos Park, Illinois.

Holy Family Villa is a fully licensed nursing home with a 24-hour nursing staff. Holy Family offers therapy as needed: physical, occupational, or speech therapy. The villa also provides social services, pastoral care, and nutritious meals. Holy Family is part of the ministry of Catholic Charities of the Chicago Archdiocese.

We honor Roberta Magurany for her pro-life good work, serving people who are advanced in years. Through her, we also honor Holy Family Villa.
