Catholic Heroes Sought

HNP Communications Around the Province

NEW YORK — Do you know a Catholic lay person who exemplifies his or her faith? Someone who deserves recognition?

Catholic Digest magazine is offering a way to honor lay people who exemplify their Catholic faith.

Nominees may be medical researchers, volunteers, lay missionaries, environmental activists, corporate leaders, reporters, artists, athletes, entertainers, educational professionals, scientists, founders and leaders of local, regional, and national organizations that benefit the poor, sick, elderly, persecuted, or disabled — anyone who uses their gifts and faith to make a difference in the lives of others.

To nominate a person, send an e-mail, describing why the person is significant, to Catholic Digest before May 1. The magazine will accept only nominations that include:
· Name of nominee
