Clifford W. Barnes Award

In honor of our founder, Clifford W. Barnes, the Chicago Sunday Evening Club recognizes individuals who have spent a lifetime putting their faith into action in the service of Chicago. The 2019 inaugural Barnes Awards were given to John D’Arcy, Jr. and Philip Sweet. We are forever indebted for their devoted civic work to promote the religious and moral welfare of our great city and beyond.


David D’Arcy and David Sweet, accepting the award on behalf of their respective fathers, receive the Barnes Award at the 2019 Nehemiah Luncheon.
