Each year at the Archdiocese Diaconate Convocation the wife or widow of a deacon receives the St Priscilla award for “Outstanding Service to the Church and the Diaconate”
This year the awardee was Marlene for her service and dedication to the Kolbe House Jail Ministry and the ladies she ministers too.
She was nominated by Deacon Dave Brencic whose final line in his nomination was “Marlene Heyes is a beautiful role model for all of us and someone who has taken the Corporal Works of Mercy to heart and lives them.”
Her husband, Deacon Stuart, is extremely proud of her and her ministry to the incarcerated.
Congratulations Marlene from the Clergy, Staff and parishioners of St Cletus parish.
