The 2017 Bishop’s Dinner and Awards Ceremony will present the Saint Joseph the Worker Awards
The Ceremony honors the work of people and organizations that enhance the quality of life for the community.
The Most Reverend James Alan Wilkowski announced today that the 2017 Bishop’s Dinner and Awards Ceremony for the 20th anniversary of the consecration of the Church will be on Saturday, November 4th at the Diplomat West Banquets.
The Dinner, which also commemorates the 20th anniversary of the Episcopal Consecration of Bishop Wilkowski, will honor the work of individuals and organizations with the Saint Joseph the Worker Award.
The Bishop selected the Saint Joseph the Worker Award because those chosen to be honored have witnessed the example of Joseph – working for the greater good and doing so with love and humility. The annual celebration provides the Bishop and the Evangelical Catholic Diocese of the Northwest the occasion to simply say “Thank you” to the Honorees.
