Annual Recognition Dinner Honors Awardees

Catholic Charities Annual Recognition Dinner was held Thursday, June 6, 2019 at The Casino at Lakemont. It was a wonderful affair where friends, family and members of the community came together to recognize this year's award winners.  

“Amen I say to you whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me.” Matthew 25:40
