Margaret's Benemerenti Medal

During his recent visitation, Bishop Marcus presented the Benemerenti Medal to Margaret Kelly. It is a prestigious Papal Award in recognition of her long and faithful service. The Benemerenti Medal is a well-deserved honour given to laity and clergy for exceptional and long-standing service to the Catholic Church. Margaret has been actively involved in parish life at St Joseph’s Church for the over three decades. Margaret said: “I couldn’t believe it, it is such an honour to be recognised by the Pope. I will treasure it for the rest of my life.” First awarded in the 18th century as a military honour, the present Benemerenti Medal was designed by Blessed Pope Paul VI.  Margaret Kelly now joins an august list of past recipients, including Maria von Trapp, of The Sound of Music fame.
