I am pleased to announce that this year’s Lumen Christi Award recipient is Eugene McGillis. A native son of Superior, Gene has strong ties to both the Cathedral Parish and St. Anthony, Lake Nebagamon parish.
Normally we would celebrate Gene’s life with our annual Award Dinner on the Friday before Memorial Day Weekend; unfortunately, like so many other events, we have had to cancel the dinner this year because of COVID-19.
Our plan is to honor Gene next year in May 2021 at the Lumen Christi Award Dinner, along with the current year’s recipient. If you know Gene, please feel free to drop him a note, give him a call, or congratulate him on Facebook. His service to the Church and our community offer us all a fitting example of the Light of Christ!
May all of us continue to be inspired by the many examples of faith and compassion that we are witnessing in the face of this pandemic. While it is a difficult time, it does provide us all with rich opportunities to reflect on our lives and make changes that bring us closer to the Lord and one another.
I urge us all to continue to pray for our world as we confront COVID-19.
