At the meeting, Father Charleston presented several awards to parishioners: The St. Stephen Outreach Award, for representing Redeemer in the community through outreach and service, was awarded to Jason Kubisiak and Jackie Overton; the St. Benedict’s Service Award, for faithful ministry on campus, went to Jack Thompson and Jody Maxwell; and the Volunteer of the Year Award, for extraordinary service to the parish, was given to Patty Sullivan and Rich Hill.

Father Charleston announced that parishioners Eliza & Hugh Culverhouse donated $100,000 to the parish as a matching challenge to encourage all of us to give in 2023. Their gift and your contributions will help with our growing needs as we contend with higher costs for many necessities. The deadline for us to raise $100,000 is July 31.
