Saint Patrick Roman Catholic Parish

Service Awards

Congratulations to these parishioners who have won
the St. Patrick’s  Service Award:

Ken and Deb Schultz
……………………………………..

Ken and Deb received the St Patrick Parish Service Award on December 10th in church
after Advent Evening Prayer.  This award consists of a framed certificate and a lapel pin.

For over twenty years, Ken and Deb have devoted thousands of hours
elevating worshipers’ praise to God through beautiful music. As cantors,
and through their guitar instrumentals and participation in the church choir,
they have enriched and ennobled several decades of evening prayers,
stations of the cross, and the celebration of many hundreds of
Masses. Their willingness to share their time and talents reflects great credit on
our parish and themselves.

Congratulations John Hopkins!

John Hopkins received the St Patrick Parish Service Award in front of his fellow Finance Council members on September 12th.
This award consists of a framed certificate and a lapel pin.
John has volunteered for a myriad of ministries for more than a decade. Many of his activities are time intensive, including Sacristan and Master of Ceremonies for all Holy Week Masses. His leadership roles include Finance Council Membership and scheduling all weekend Mass Liturgical Ministers. John’s service elevates the worship experience for thousands of parishioners and visitors, bears witness to Christ, and reflects great credit to our parish and to himself.

Congratulations Rose Kulig!

for many years. She devotes countless hours
coordinating volunteers, advertising, sorting
and preparing sales items, and supervising the event.
She also identifies charities that accept

Her willingness to share her time and talents
bears witness to Christ and reflects great credit
to our parish and to herself.
