2019 Cheverus Award - 12/05/2019

In the bicentennial year of the Archdiocese of Boston (2008), Cardinal Séan O’Malley instituted the Cheverus Award medals. These medals are now conferred upon selected recipients from throughout the Archdiocese annually at the Cathedral on or around the Solemnity of Christ the King. The medal recipients include laypeople, religious and deacons who are chosen for their service to the Church and God’s people. We are happy to announce that this year, Diane Flynn was awarded the Cheverus Medal on November 24. As many of you know, Diane was the Coordinator of the CCD program for Grades 7-10 for many years at Saint Theresa Parish. Through Diane’s diligent efforts, hundreds of our young parishioners were educated in the Faith, were Confirmed, and during difficult tragedies, were consoled and comforted by her care and genuine love. We know you join with us in congratulating Diane and her family upon this occasion and thanking her (and her husband, John) for their service and dedication to Saint Theresa of Avila Parish. Reverend John J. Connolly, Jr. Administrator
