Mary Morgan Received Prestigious Dei Verbum Award

On Sunday, January 12, Dean Mark Goodwin, and professor Jim McGill and Gene Giuliano from the University of Dallas presented the Dei Verbum award to Mary Morgan at the 11:00 Mass at Christ the King Church in Bossier City. The award is given each year by the School of Ministry of the University of Dallas to a graduate of the Catholic Biblical School who has offered exceptional service to the local church, the ministry of faith formation and to the larger community, especially the poor.  This award was scheduled to be given to Mary on December 7, 2013 at the university, but an ice storm forced the cancellation of the event.

Mary has been teaching RCIA and pre-Cana classes for over 25 years. She also visits the sick every week, brings communion to them, comforts them during their suffering and is there for them as they face the end of their life. She is involved with Christian Services and the Poor Man’s Supper fundraiser, as well as actively paricipates in the 40 Days for Life by praying at the abortion clinic. Mary is also actively involved in prison ministry. This began with visiting prisoners and it has unfolded into giving support to their families. She volunteers at the Martin Luther King medical clinic and is a nurse, a mother, a grandmother and a friend. Congratulations Mary!

    This award couldn’t have been given to a more deserving person. Mary is truly one of God’s angels here on earth and such a blessing to so many people in need.

    I just ran across this article and I am so happy to see she is being honored in this way. Sam an Mary Jo Arrington have been blessed by this woman many times and after the passin of Sam, she has on several occasions come during I’m sure her own busy schedule to love on Mary Jo and give her communion. What she doesn’t know is that those simple things ministered to her Mary Jo’s family as well. Mary you have shown Gods love an compassion to so many and we could not be happier for you.
