On Sunday, October 28, 2007, on behalf of The Roman Catholic Diocese of Burlington, Father Rome presented Karen Langelier with a certificate recognizing this accomplishment. This recognition is to honor women whose service to their parish is remarkable; women who are understanding in the way they live their Christian life and prayer and service; women whose lives demonstrate the Gospel values.
On behalf of St. Luke Parish, Father Feltz nominated Karen for this recognition because she has demonstrated these qualities by sharing her faith with our young people and fellow parishioners in need. She shares her time on various committees, in the 9th grade religious education classroom, in assisting in the training of our altar servers, as well as serving as a Eucharistic Minister, all of which demonstrates her willingness to give of her time and talent to the parish.
Father Feltz's nomination was supported by letters submitted to the diocese from Jim and Jean Groseclose and Roberta Machia.
Karen was also presented a statue of our Blessed Mother which was blessed by Bishop Matano at the Diocesan celebration which was held last weekend.
After the presentation, the members of St. Luke Parish present gave Karen a big round of applause. Above and beyond the above and the normal duties of a mother in the home, Karen also home schools her children and assists her husband Paul in the daily work on the farm and the car wash they operate on Main Street here in Fairfax.
CONGRATULATIONS KAREN LANGELIER!!!
