Boston, MA (November 18, 2012) — Cardinal Seán P. O’Malley, OFM Cap presented 122 Cheverus Award Medals to laypersons, deacons and religious Sunday, November 18 at the Cathedral of The Holy Cross.
First presented in 2008 at the conclusion of the Archdiocese’s bicentennial, the annual award recognizes Catholics for their dedicated service to the Church. The medal is named for the city’s first bishop, Jean-Louis Anne Magdelaine Lefebvre de Cheverus, who led the diocese from 1808 until his return to France in 1824. Bishop Cheverus died in 1836 as the archbishop of Bordeaux.
