March 19th is the Feast of St. Joseph the husband of Mary and foster father of Jesus. He is also the patron of the Diocese of Buffalo. Each year the Diocese recognizes those who have followed in the footsteps of St. Joseph and honors them for all they have done for the Church, especially their Parish.
This year Dick and Mary Agoston are receiving the Lay Award of St. Joseph the Worker at a Mass and reception Saturday, March 18th at St. Joseph Cathedral. During the Mass Bishop Malone will present an award to the recipients of the St. Joseph the Worker Award.
Dick and Mary are being recognized for their many years of service to St. Louis Church in various ways. They are always ready and willing to help with our various social activities by assisting with preparation, cleanup as well as contributing their talents to the life of the parish. In addition, Dick is always the first one here for the cleanup and maintenance of the church grounds. They have helped us prepare the church for Christmas and Easter as well.
We thank Dick and Mary for their selfless service and dedication to St. Louis and congratulate them on their Award and honor.
