Every other Fall, individuals are nominated by their parishes for special recognition of their outstanding service and commitment to volunteering within the parish. This year on Sept. 13, the Bishop’s Recognition Mass commended 55 individuals. Honorees attended both in person and virtually via the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception Facebook page, and also received a commemorative pin.

We are thankful for your service!
