Chicago Catechetical Ministries Awards Banquet

Last evening, I had the pleasure of attending the Chicago Archdiocesan Catechetical Ministries Awards Banquet at the Drury Lane Theater in Oak Brook, IL. In particular, I had the honor of introducing my DRE, Arlene Astrowski, who was a recipient of one of the archdiocesan awards!

There were over 600 people in attendance, mostly catechists and catechetical leaders along with many pastors and pastoral staff, to honor the efforts of numerous catechetical ministers in the Archdiocese of Chicago. His Eminence Francis Cardinal George presented the awards along with Maruja Sedano, the Director of the Office for Catechesis and Youth Ministry.

Congrats to all and especially to Arlene!  Here are more photos from the evening.
