"Regardless of who wins, every neighbor is a winner! These awards are not so much about who we are inasmuch about what we do or have done!"
"When I was notified that I had been nominated for several of the awards to be presented at the Gala, I was stunned and humbled! There are so many "good neighbors" in my parish who deserve to be recognized for their service. I am very grateful that I have been considered for this honor!"
Dr. Janet Basset
STM Parishioner/Choir Member
"What a blessing it is to see God at work! There are those around us at STM who help us do just that. Their commitment to serving God and neighbor is inspiring and always evident. Thanks to God's grace at work in the lives of two of our fellow parishioners (Carlos Padilla and Gary Christensen), we are being given the opportunity to acknowledge some of those people. I can think of many of them here at STM. However, I wouldn't be one who would 'pop into my head.'
You can imagine my surprise to learn that I had been nominated for one of the inaugural 2023 Carlos Michael Communications Media 'Bowtie Good Neighbor Hero' Awards! My immediate response was, 'I can't imagine why!?' I am very honored ... albeit stunned ... to have been nominated for this award, and I am sincerely grateful for having been considered worthy of the nomination.
I still wonder why I was nominated ... I just try to help in whatever way I can. But I am sure that is what all those other people I can think of at STM would say."
