We are thrilled to announce that Kelly Meraw, Director of Pastoral Care for our Collaborative, was awarded the Cardinal’s Cheverus Award  medal this past weekend.

These medals are conferred upon selected laypeople, religious, and deacons from around the Archdiocese each year at a prayer service at the Cathedral of the Holy Cross.

The oval-shaped, silver medal bears the image of Bishop Cheverus, founding Bishop of Boston, on the front, and on the reverse side is the Bishop’s coat of arms and episcopal motto “diligamus nos invicem” (let us love one another.)

The medal recipients are chosen for their service to the Church and God’s people. We know you join us in extending heartfelt thanks to Kelly for her dedicated service to the Church and for the many ways she ministers to the people of our Collaborative and beyond.
