Congratulations are in order for six of our Vincentian volunteers for being named recipients of the Benemerenti Award.
This papal honor - accorded by Pope Benedict XVI for "serving with distinction" - is given to individuals in the Catholic church who have shown exemplary service to their church, family and community.
Our six Vincentians include:
* Remedios Baluyut, St. Bernard, Los Angeles;
* Joseph Coughlin, St. Bernard, Los Angeles;
* Ed Kunkler, Our Mother of Good Counsel, Los Angeles;
* Martin Loera, St. Frances of Rome, Azusa;
* Cecilia Ordonez, St. Raymond, Downey;

May God continue to bless each of you and the individuals you help on a daily basis!
