Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Altoona-Johnstown sponsored its annual Recognition Dinner on May 31 at the Altoona Grand Hotel. Three individuals received the Monsignor William M. Griffin Humanitarian Award; six young people received the Matthew 25 Youth Humanitarian Award.
Bishop Mark offered remarks and greeted the awardees. “Our honored guests who have been recognized for their service have come to know what Pope Francis says that we need to make our faith more charitable by treating others as our own brothers and sisters,” said the Bishop.
