Catich, artist, author and scholar." said Paul Herrera Chairman of ALL. "We are launching the Art Preservation Campaign hoping to provide funds for continued teaching events, gallery exhibitions and lectures to share Father Catich's legacy with a national and international audience. But most importantly, the preservation of his artwork."

The Spirit of Anne Frank Human Writes Award was given to Berry for the best exemplification of the spirit of Anne Frank in their work. In addition, Steve was asked to write the forwards for the 2014-2015 re-release of the novels of James Michener, his boyhood idol and one of America's foremost storytellers.
ALL, organized in 2012 as a nonprofit organization, has adopted as its primary purpose the fostering of the Catich doctrine and making it known and accessible to all.
