The Hands of Christ is a Diocesan recognition program to assist parishes in affirming their high school seniors who have been the “Hands of Christ” in their church, home, school and community. Recognized seniors are invited to receive a plaque from the Most Reverend Bishop Salvatore R. Matano on Tuesday, February 7, 2017 at 7 pm at St. John the Evangelist Church (West Ridge Road).

The criteria to receive this very special recognition:

  • Is a practicing Roman Catholic in a parish in the Diocese of Rochester & attends Mass.
  • Has consistently demonstrated a Christian attitude by word and example.
  • Has been actively involved in the parish as well as their school or community.
  • Has been a positive role model to their peers, younger children and adults.
  • Is currently a high school senior.

If you would like to recommend a high school senior who fulfills all of the above requirements, call the Christian Formation Office (663-8000) or e-mail Mary at meggleston@dor.org or Jill at jkinsella@dor.org for a nomination form. Nomination forms must be submitted by Tuesday, November 1.
