"You are the salt of the earth. You are the light of the world."
Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Greensburg has hosted their 21st annual Communities of Salt and Light Awards Dinner on Thursday, April 25, 2019. All proceeds from the dinner are redistributed to the most vulnerable and at-risk residents of the diocese by granting temporary emergency financial assistance with food, light, water, sewage and all heating sources.
since its 21st year, the event has netted more than $1 million dollars to help nearly 9,000 individuals and families in the four counties served by the diocese — Armstrong, Fayette, Indiana and Westmoreland.
The 2019 awards were once again held at Stratigos Banquet Centre, North Huntingdon.
Bishop Edward C. Malesic had presented the awards after the evening's dinner. Msgr. Raymond E. Riffle, managing director of Catholic Charities, served as the master of ceremonies.
