Parishioner Awarded for Service

Longtime parishioner Olivia Crosby received the Manifesting the Kingdom award from Cardinal Donald Wuerl earlier this month during a special ceremony at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception. Each year, Cardinal Wuerl recognizes lay women and men and religious of the Archdiocese of Washington who demonstrate the presence of Jesus in their lives and who have participated in an exceptional service to the Church. Olivia’s many contributions to the St. Matthew’s community include her catechetical and social justice leadership. We congratulate Olivia, and we thank her for her service to God’s people.
