Catholic Charities annually sponsors the "Matthew 25 Humanitarian Award" to recognize young people in our Diocese who have demonstrated exceptional service to their communities--especially service to the poor and needy. This year parishioner Olivia McCafferty was nominated, then selected to be a Matthew 25 Humanitarian Award winner for her many acts of generosity to her church, the community and her school. Winners receive a scholarship for tuition/school/college expenses and a plaque recognizing their achievements. Fr. John will be receiving the award on behalf of Olivia this Wednesday, June 3rd at the Blair County Convention Center in Altoona. Olivia has been an Altar Server and Cantor for the past seven years as well as an avid supporter of the Women's Shelter in State College, Big Brothers and Sisters, Centre County Youth Services Bureau, and the high school's "Expect Respect" program which promotes healthy relationships by educating the area youth on bullying, domestic violence, and dating violence. Olivia will be attending Robert Morris University this fall, majoring in Bio Medical Engineering. Congratulations, Olivia!
