On the First Sunday of Advent, the Bene Merenti medal and certificate were presented to Suzanne Riley for her tireless commitment to the parish as an Organist, Extraordinary Minister of the Eucharist, Catechist and Teacher. As always, in receiving this award she was entirely self effacing.
The certificate reads:
Francis, Supreme Pontiff,
making use of his power to honour by this mark of distinction
has seen fit to give and bestow a medal for excellence
established for whoever is exceedingly well deserving in Christian matters
on Suzanne Riley.
From the Vatican 18th August 2016
