Bishop’s Awards for Service to the Church

Publish date: Friday, March 1, 2013

--

Bishop Kevin J. Farrell presented the second annual Bishop’s Awards for Service to the Church to 138 lay men and women during a Mass of Thanksgiving at the Cathedral Shrine of the Virgin of Guadalupe on February 23.

From Bishop Farrell's blog:

It was a glorious celebration at the cathedral on Saturday as we honored 139 lay volunteers for their service to the Church. Most of the awardees had been nominated by their pastors but some were recognized for their work with diocesan agencies.

The occasion was the second annual Mass and reception for the presentation of the Bishop’s Awards for Service to the Church. It was a real family affair. I particularly enjoyed visiting with award recipients and their families at the reception-brunch that followed the Mass.

Theirs is the greatest gift…the gift of self. What a true and tremendous blessing they are!
