Burgundy Horizontal Rule for Christ Episcopal Church La Crosse, WI


Father Patrick was awarded the prestigious silver cross of St. Augustine in church at the 10:30 service Rose Sunday. Diocese of Eau Claire Bishop Ed Leidel presented Father Patrick with the award on behalf of the Archbishop of Canterbury (Rowan) who bestowed the award in absentia. Archbishop Rowan is retiring, and was unable to travel from London to La Crosse to present the award personally. He asked Bishop Ed to present it on his behalf with best wishes. The award was given to Father Patrick for his evangelism and outreach, particularly seeking and serving Christians who live in poverty and persecution in the far flung corners of the world. This culminates an active life long career of Father Patrick who consistently seeks and serves those in need locally and globally.
