Parishioners, Andrea and David Wirt, were among 200 parishioners from the Archdiocese of Chicago, to be awarded the 2014 Christifideles Award from among 147 parishes for their exemplary ministry. The ceremony was held Sunday, October 26th, 2014 at Holy Name Cathedral with Cardinal Francis George presiding.
Andrea and David Wirt have been highly involved servant disciples and leaders in our community for a number of years. They both have been, and continue to be, faithful sponsors, catechists and members of our Parish RCIA team for over five years. Besides this long time commitment to welcoming new Catholics into our Faith Community, Andrea has served as the Woman’s Club president and now is a member of the Parish Council, as a representative of the Community Life Commission. David is the chair of our Parish Finance Council. Both Andrea and David share the generosity of their many gifts, talents, and energy as servant leaders, organizers, and animators to build up the quality and stability of our community life as a parish community. We are more as a parish community because of their dedication and presence among us.
