Mr. Jerry Coniker: Co-Founder (with the late Gwen C. Coniker) of Catholic FamilyLand & Apostolate for Family Consecration. Father of 13 (one with the Lord) and grandfather of 66 (and counting). Mr. Coniker began working with Pope John Paul II in November of 1983. On June 15, 2007 Pope Benedict XVI, through his Pontifical Council for the Laity, formally approved the Apostolate for Family Consecration as an "international association of the faithful" to simultaneously sanctify family life and parish life in communion with the hierarchy of the Church. On July 10, 2007 the preliminary informative process for the Cause of Beatification and Canonization of Co-Founder Gwen Cecilia Coniker was formally opened by Bishop R. Daniel Conlon of the Diocese of Steubenville, with the opening Session taking place on September 9, 2007. On March 29, 2008 during its annual National Meeting, the Institute on Religious Life bestowed upon Jerry and Gwen Coniker its Pro Fidelitate et Virtute Award. This is only the third time that this award has been granted to a member of the laity, and never before had a married couple been recognized in that way by the Institute.
