ROCKVILLE CENTRE, N.Y. – October 23, 2013 – On Sunday, October 27, 2013 at 3:00 p.m., the Most Reverend William Murphy, bishop of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Rockville Centre will honor lay people from the Diocese with the Saint Agnes Medal of Service during a prayer service at the Cathedral of Saint Agnes, Rockville Centre. One individual or married couple from each of the 133 parishes in the Diocese has been chosen. This service will be broadcast live on Telecare, the diocesan television station (Cablevision, Channel 29/Verizon FiOS 296).

Now in its seventh year, Bishop Murphy announced the creation of the Saint Agnes Medal during a January 21, 2007 Mass opening the Golden Jubilee (50 year anniversary) of the Diocese of Rockville Centre. Pastors from 133 parishes are asked to nominate lay people who unselfishly donate their time and talent to their parishes.

“Honorees are lay people whose love of the Church has been shown through the devotion to the Holy Father, to our diocese and to their parish,” said Bishop Murphy. “They are the unsung heroes in our midst who build up our parish communities by extraordinary service in parish ministry, parish administration or some significant volunteer role.”

The Saint Agnes medal features the image of Saint Agnes, patroness of the Diocese of Rockville Centre, on one side and a depiction of the Cathedral of Saint Agnes on the other. The two-inch diameter medal is made to be worn around the neck.
