Award Night

The Cross
I just heard on Marshall Ramsey's radio show that Sr. Dorothea is receiving a papal honor tonight at the Cathedral of St. Peter in Jackson. I guess it had been announced before in the Bishop's voice, The Mississippi Catholic, but I somehow missed it.

Here's more:
Pope Benedict XVI has chosen Sister Dorothea Sondgeroth to receive the Pro Ecclesia et Pontifice Cross for her many years of service to the church in the diocese and the Mississippi community.  The honor is for distinguished service to the church by lay people and clergy. It is the highest medal that can be awarded to the laity by the Papacy.
