St. Jude the Apostle Medal

On Sunday, November 21, parishioner Maggie Moren will receive the St. Jude the Apostle Medal. Here is a description of the award from the Diocese of St. Petersburg Web site:

Established in 1999 by Most Reverend Robert N. Lynch, Fourth Bishop of St. Petersburg, the St. Jude the Apostle Medal is awarded to a lay member of a parish for distinguished and outstanding service.

Cast on the medal are the Diocesan Coat of Arms (first image) and the image of St. Jude the Apostle, Patron of this Diocese (second image).

During evening prayer, on the Feast of Christ the King Sunday, November 21, at 3 p.m., at the Cathedral of St. Jude the Apostle, Bishop Lynch will recognize 102 recipients from 78 Parishes and Missions and one Diocesan recipient.

Through their generosity and loyal service to their parish and communities, these lay men and women have contributed greatly to spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
