GOLDEN ROSE AWARD
FOR ELIZABETH FITZGERALD
On Sunday, February 6th, 2022, the Vicariate 1 ACCW (Archdiocesan Council of Catholic Women) and Bishop Jeffrey Grob, presented this year’s Golden Rose Award for Saint Anne parish to Elizabeth Fitzgerald (pictured below).
Each year, the Golden Rose award is given to young women in each parish who exhibit exemplary leadership, spirituality, dedication and is a practicing Catholic.
Elizabeth’s service to others was outstanding and reflected her dedication and commitment to her Catholic Faith. Her contributions to Saint Anne Church included volunteering for Community Meals and House of Hope, serving as an Altar Server Captain and leading Kairos Retreat for high school students. As a student at Barrington High School, Elizabeth is a Snowflake leader (drug prevention program for middle school students), a senior leader/teaching assistant in gym class, and a class representative for Choir, just to name a few.
Bishop Jeffrey Grob gave a beautiful homily and really focused on speaking to the young ladies about very small acts of kindness that make a big difference.
Congratulations to Elizabeth Fitzgerald on her incredible achievement and recognition!
