St. Nicholas Award Winner

Congratulations to Mark Cannistraci!

The OLA Spirit of St. Nicholas Award seeks to recognize a young parishioner who has quietly and habitually sought to help others at and beyond OLA during his or her high school years. The awardee will be someone who exhibits the true Spirit of St. Nicholas through actions such as regularly opening or holding doors, standing so someone else may sit, serving others first, sharing resources or possessions, jumping up without being asked to help with whatever is happening and enlisting others to help with a need that is bigger than something one person can address. The awardee does not wait to be asked to perform acts of kindness and generosity, does not seek recognition and may even act anonymously. The awardee treats all people and animals with love and respect.
