Women to be recognized for Ministry to Church

MONTPELIER — Twenty-six women will be recognized for their service to the Church on Sunday, Nov. 5, at 3 p.m. at St. Augustine Church here. Burlington Bishop Salvatore R. Matano will preside, preach, and confer the honor upon these women who also will be celebrated in their respective parishes on the following weekend.

This is a grassroots program in that it begins in the parishes where nominations are made. This year’s honorees come from 24 parishes. A selection committee considers the nominees and recommends the honorees to the bishop.

This is the sixth year for the “Recognition of Women In Ministry.” During that time, 160 women have been thanked and honored for their contributions to their parish communities and to the diocesan Church. Each year these outstanding women have been saluted as “light of the world and salt of the earth.”
