Salt and Light awards to honor parishioners for good works
Two diocesan parishioners will be honored for philanthropy and humanitarianism, and a parish-based human service organization will be recognized for its work at the 17th annual Catholic Charities’ Communities of Salt and Light Awards Dinner April 23 at Stratigos Banquet Centre, North Huntingdon.
The Salt and Light dinner provides funds to the most vulnerable and at-risk residents within the four counties of the diocese. The money raised provides temporary emergency assistance for food, light, water, sewage and heating.
Charles Fischer, a parishioner of St. John the Baptist Parish, Scottdale, will be honored for his philanthropy, and Nicholas Kolb, a parishioner of St. Thomas More University Parish, Indiana, will receive the award for humanitarianism. The St. Vincent de Paul Society of St. Joseph Parish, New Kensington, will receive the outstanding human service organization honor. Read the full story.
