Thank you for your service

With this issue, the Catholic Voice salutes and thanks the religious men and women who have devoted their lives to serving the people of God. In the following pages, we honor hundreds of teachers, nurses, chaplains and parish priests who have given anywhere from 25 to 80 years in service of the Lord. Join us in offering them our thanks.
