2015 Annual Memorial Mass & Awards Ceremony
Ceremony celebrates Vincentians in Chicago who walk in the footsteps of St. Vincent de Paul and Blessed Frederic Ozanam
Vincentians, friends and family members gathered together on the feast day of St. Vincent de Paul, Sunday, September 27, at St. Pascal Church in Chicago for our Annual Memorial Mass and Awards Ceremony.
We were delighted and honored to have our Spiritual Advisor Monsignor Michael Boland and Assistant Spiritual Advisor Father Gerard Kelly celebrate our Mass and renew our Vincentian commitment again this year. Special appreciation and thanks to our participating Con-Celebrants, the Very Reverend Paul G. Seaman and Deacon Paul Spalla of St. Pascal.
Beautiful music and vocals for our celebration were provided by St. Pascal Director of Music Anthony Jurich and the St. Pascal Choir.
Past and present Vincentians were prayed for and honored for their service to the poor in the spirit of our founder Frederic Ozanam and patron St. Vincent de Paul. Awards were presented to several Vincentian members and friends of the Society nominated by their peers for outstanding service.
Council President Bill Soucie and Chief Executive Officer James Lonergan officiated the presentation of awards.
The Ozanam Award was presented to the following Vincentians for their years of outstanding service over and above the ministry of a conference member.
