St. Peter's Parishioner Receives Award
Congratulations to St. Peter's Parishioner Derryl Lawrence, 2014 Cheverus award recipient. First presented in 2008 at the celebration to mark the conclusion of the archdiocese's bicentennial year, the annual award recognizes Catholics for their dedicated service to the Church. The medal is named for the archdiocese's first bishop, Jean-Louis Lefebvre de Cheverus, who led the diocese from 1808 until his return to France in 1824. Bishop Cheverus died in 1836 as the Archbishop of Bordeaux.
Medal recipients are chosen for their service to the Church and God's people, and our own Derryl Lawrence certainly fits that description. Congratulations Derryl and thanks for all you do for our parish community!
