Gartland Service Award

Deborah Blakey and Laura Frizzell were presented the Gartland Service Award December 5, 2020 by the Most Reverend Stephen D. Parkes, D.D., Bishop of Savannah. Plaques to commemorate the achievement were presented by council number 10541 of the Knights of Columbus. The award is an honor bestowed by the Diocese of Savannah on people who have given distinguished service to the church in the tradition of its first bishop, Francis X. Gartland, who served from 1850-54. The recipients, nominated by their pastors, are volunteers who have worked quietly behind the scenes to make a difference in parish and community life.
