FAMILIES OF THE MONTH

CLOSE THIS WINDOW

March 2019

The Stephen and Cindy Slimp Family

It would be impossible to list all of the things that this family does for our church and our catholic community. Whenever help is needed Cindy, Stephen, and the girls are always ready to help.

Whenever there is a funeral and a lunch to be served, you can bet that they will be there to help serve the meal. When they are not personally scheduled to handle the lunch, Cindy makes certain that someone else will be there to do the job.

Our congratulations go out to Steve, Cindy and the girls for setting the example of true service to their church.

September 2018

Joanne & Tom Zettler Family

Congratulations go out to Brother Tom Zettler, PSD and his wife, Joann on being selected as our Family of the Month for September.

What else can be said about. Any where you choose to look in our Catholic Community, you will probably see, Tom, or Joann, or both volunteering for some job or the other. Tom is a reader at Mass and also serves as a Sacristan. If someone elderly person needs a ride to the doctor Joann is usually the driver, even if the destination is Jackson.

Congratulations to Brother Tom and Joann for being selected as our Family of the Month for September


August 2018

Pat & John Maloney, PGK

What can I say, except Congratulations to our August Family of the Month, John & Pat Maloney. Both of these people are very active in our Catholic Community, together and individually.

John is an integral part of our Prison Ministry Program as well as being our Music Man in our 1st Degree Exemplification (Now called the Admissions Degree). He is a Past Grand Knight of our council. His son, two sons in law, and two of his grandsons are members of our council. Well, that's enough about him, lets talk about her.

Pat is a volunteer "Pink Lady" at Jeff Anderson Hospital here in Meridian. She is a member of the Our Lady Of Fatima Sodality and serves as its treasurer. If you come to our Wednesday Night Suppers, you will see Pat selling tickets to the 50/50 drawings that are held each night. This money will be contributed to our school at the end of the School year.

As is true in any good marriage, John is able to do what he does because of the support he gets from Pat.

Again, congratulations to the John & Pat Maloney Family on being selected as Council 802's Family of the Month for August


July 2018

Pam is active is several aspects of our parish. She is a member of Our Lady of Fatima Sodality, ACES, hospitality/good will committees and can usually be found working in our church store after mass. Together, George and Pam facilitate our parish schedule for Adoration of the Most Holy Sacrament. George and Pam are most deserving of recognition as our Family of the month!


May 2018

Betty & Gary Koca

Our congratulations go out to the Betty and Gary Koca family. As most of you know, Gary is in charge of our Wednesday Night Suppers during the school year. He works very hard at providing a good meal for a good price.

He also builds picnic tables and raffles them off to raise money for our school.

It goes without saying that Betty is a key figure in Gary's ability to do what he does for the Catholic Community of Meridian. Behind every good man there stands a good woman to pick him up when he falls or to boost his morale when he gets a little down.

Our congratulations go out to Liberty and Sal Moreno on being selected as Council 802's Family of the Month for February.


January 2018

The John & Nelda Bennett Family

If you were to cut John Bennett he would bleed Knights of Columbus colored blood. Why? You ask? Well, I'll tell you. Because that is how far the Knights of Columbus Organization is embedded in him. Needless to say, John could not be so dedicated to the Knights if he were not being greatly supported by his wife, Nelda.

Our congratulations go out to John and Nelda on being selected as our Family of the Month for the Month of January.

March 2016

Nelda & John Bennett

Our congratulations go out to the John and Nelda Bennett family for being selected as our Family of the Month for March. They are quite active in council functions. When our Warden died several years ago, John an another knight agreed to take over the running of the council bar. He can always be found working the kitchen on Wednesday night. In fact, he goes in during the afternoon to make sure everything is set for the night's activities.

Anytime the council has a function involving food, Nelda is sure to be on the job and in the kitchen or the serving line. When clean up time rolls around, she is among the first to step up to the task of putting our hall back in order. Nelda was, at one time, on the church's dusting committee but due to health problems she had to resign from that committee.

Again, our congratulations go out to the Nelda and John Bennett family on being selected as our Family of the Month for March.

They faithfully attend Mass on Saturday evenings at St Patrick. Occasionally, you may even find them at St Joseph on a Sunday Morning if they were not able to attend on Saturday.
