Holy Name Province honors its partners in ministry with the Francis Medal. The Francis Medal is awarded to persons who contribute to the advancement of the values and ideals of St. Francis of Assisi. I am happy to announce that the Francis Medal will be awarded to Elkin and Gloria Vargas at a special service in the church on Monday, August 29, at 7:00 PM. All are welcome. After many years as parishioners of St. Mary’s, Elkin and Gloria are moving to Florida. They have been vital members in the parish and active in all kinds of ministries. Elkin is a Fourth Degree Knight of Columbus, Food Pantry volunteer and a founder of our Latino Ministry. Elkin and Gloria have always been available to offer assistance to anyone who needed it, especially the newly arrived immigrants.
We are so proud to call them friends of St. Mary’s. We will miss them and we wish them the very best in this next chapter of their lives!
