The St. Francis of Assisi Awards, instituted in 2001 in honor of Archbishop Emeritus Francis T. Hurley, recognize individuals and groups who exemplify the spirit of St. Francis of Assisi. The candidates should compassionately, generously and consistently give of their time, talent and treasure for the good of the local Church and all God’s children.
Awards are given in three categories: priest, deacon, sister or brother; lay person; and youth or youth group.
We celebrate these individuals and groups in February in conjunction with the Winter Pastoral Days meeting. Nominations can be taken all year long, and are due in late January in time for consideration by a volunteer Selection Committee.
