On Sunday, April 23, Mr. Charles Houk and Mr. Cosmo Morabito received the Blessed John of Vercelli award at the 51st Annual Beaver County Holy Name Society Banquet. Of the ten awardees, two of them are from our parish.
As their pastor, I felt a deep sense of pride and humility as “Chuck” and “Cos” received their award, their first words were to congratulate and complement each other. They presented themselves as brothers. More importantly, they revealed to everyone at the banquet the “spirit” that makes our parish family so special.
“Chuck” attends Mass every morning. He has worked tirelessly for our Social Services, assisted our Golden Agers, served the Holy Name Society, serves as an usher, in SAG, has worked for our Bazaar, is a member of the Knights of Columbus and Catholic Men’s Fellowship.
“Cos” is also a daily communicant. He is a member of Holy Name Society, an usher, and a member of the Knights of Columbus. “Cos” is a senior altar server, has organized the Holy Thursday Seven Church visit and the Good Friday Stations of the Cross.
