The Saint Joseph the Worker Award



It is the intention of the Bishop’s Dinner and Awards Ceremony is to recognize and honor the work of individuals and organizations which, we believe, enhances the quality of life for our community and builds up the Kingdom of God on Earth. 

The majority of those whom Bishop Wilkowski has honored have not always been “house-hold” names – but it has been the scope of their work and service which our community-at-large is more often familiar with. 

Our annual celebration provides the Bishop and the Evangelical Catholic Diocese of the Northwest to simply say “thank you” to our honorees. 

In expressing our gratitude to our honorees, Bishop Wilkowski bestows the Saint Joseph the Worker Award to each individual and organization being recognized. 

The Bishop selected the Saint Joseph the Worker Award because those chosen to be honored have witnessed the example of Joseph – working for the greater good and doing so with love and humility.
