The Matthew 25 awards are given annually by the Catholic Charities of the Diocese of San Diego, recognizing “parishioners, individuals and couples, nominated by their pastors or their schools, who through their compassionate service exemplify Christ’s ministry to those in need.”

The awards are named after chapter 25 of the Gospel of Matthew, specifically verses 35 and 40: “For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, a stranger and you welcomed me. … And the king will say to them in reply, ‘Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me.’”
