Dr. Nohad Toulan and Dirce Angelina Moroni Toulan will be posthumously honored with the “Two Pauls Award” at Ecumenical Ministries of Oregon’s Community Awards May 14. Presented in recognition of work in the interfaith spirit of community service, dialogue and relationship building, the “Two Pauls Award” was established in 1994 to honor two significant Oregon clergy members, The Rev. Paul Wright and Bishop Paul Waldschmidt of the Archdiocese of Portland.

The Toulans died in a car accident last October. Dr. Toulan, a Muslim, was a professor and dean emeritus of the College of Urban and Public Affairs at Portland State University. He helped found the Muslim Education Trust. Dirce, a Roman Catholic from Argentina, was an architect, planner and former Fulbright Scholar. She led the effort to support Portland State’s College of Urban and Public Affairs Library, now named the Dirce Moroni Toulan Library.

“Together, Nohad and Dirce modeled the best in interfaith relations and were champions of the universal value of the inherent worth and dignity of all peoples and faiths,” says Ecumenical Ministries.

Ecumenical Ministries is marking its 40th anniversary. The awards banquet is set to begin with a 5 p.m. auction at the Portland Hilton, 921 SW Sixth Ave. Cost is $75 per person. For more information, contact Carla Starrett-Bigg at (503) 221-1054, ext. 275, or [email protected]
