The award recognizes “those who generously and unselfishly give of themselves to their parishes," the diocese announced.
The 2013 awards were presented to parishioners from more than 70 parishes at a standing-room-only vespers service.

Another fraternity member, Jo Ginnity, OFS, also from St. Mark's, received the Immaculata Award in 2011 when it was created by Bishop Cunningham as part of the diocese’s 125th anniversary celebration.
