Archbishop Timothy P. Broglio to be Recognized as “Founding Patron” of the Saint John XXIII Foundation

WASHINGTON, DC — Mr. Joseph Starshak, CAPT, USNR (Ret.), Chair of the Board of Directors of the Saint John XXIII Foundation, is honored to announce that the Most Reverend Timothy P. Broglio, J.C.D., Archbishop for the Military Services, USA, will be recognized as the “Founding Patron” of the Saint John XXIII Foundation during the Foundation’s upcoming 2024 Patrons Reception. The honor recognizes Archbishop Broglio’s immeasurable impact on the lives of the faithful of the Archdiocese, as well as his work in the creation and formation of the Saint John XXIII Foundation. The Foundation will publicly recognize Archbishop Broglio at its Second Annual Patron’s Reception scheduled for May 2, 2024, in San Antonio, TX. During the reception, Archbishop Broglio will be presented with the Resolution of the Board of Directors and the Decoration and Medal of the Patrons.  


Reflecting on the decision of the Board to bestow this honor, Mr. Starshak said, “Mindful of his 16 years of selfless service to our Catholic Men and Women in uniform and his unwavering support of the Foundation in its first year of operations, honoring Archbishop Broglio as an Honorary Patron and singling him out as the Founding Patron was the only way to go.” Mr. Starshak added, “on a personal note, as Chair and one who has served, it has been a particular honor and joy for me to work alongside Archbishop Broglio to build a foundation dedicated to supporting the pastoral care of the men and women who serve our nation.”


The evening will begin with the Celebration of Mass at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in downtown San Antonio. The 2024 Patrons Reception will follow immediately thereafter at the Valencia Hotel (across the street from St. Mary’s). The Patron’s Reception is a ticketed event. Registration is available online at


Archbishop Broglio was appointed Founding Patron by unanimous board resolution on Feb. 6, 2024. Capt. Starshak will be joined by the board members to present Archbishop Broglio the honor at the Reception.
