Caritas Sanctae Familiae Award will be presented to Bobbi Magurany. Caritas Sanctae Familiae, meaning “Love of Holy Family,” beautifully reflects the daily experience at Holy Family Villa: in the Family of Holy Family Villa, the residents and their loving families and friends, the caring staff and generous benefactors; in the Family of Faith, the Catholic Church which nourishes and sustains us throughout life; in our own “holy families,” that formed us in love, faith and service to those dear to us and to those in need. Bobbi, Administrator at Holy Family Villa, exemplifies the “Love of Holy Family” through 25 years of providing service and care to our senior community.
The Timothy J. Lyne Award is named in honor of one of the most beloved and respected priests in the history of the Archdiocese of Chicago. Bishop Lyne celebrated 70 years as priest and 30 years as a bishop before entering into eternal life in 2013. In memory of his devotion and support to Catholic Charities mission of senior care at Holy Family Villa and his dedication as Vicar to Senior Priests, this award is bestowed upon a person of faith who exemplifies Bishop Lynes’ faithfulness, leadership, and loyalty to the Church and its senior people. This year’s award will be presented to Rev. George McKenna.
Monsignor John A. Kuzinskas Award commemorates Holy Family Villa’s chaplain who served its residents, their families and staff from 1997 until his passing on to eternal life in 2013. A priest for 61 years, his pastoral legacy lies in his dedication to all people and, in particular, to the needs of the elderly, the ill and Chicago’s Lithuanian community. The Monsignor John A. Kuzinskas Award is bestowed upon a lay person who exhibits Catholic Charities spirit of selfless giving through his or her outstanding dedication to volunteerism and involvement at Holy Family Villa. This year’s award will be presented to John Parise for his dedication and loving support of Holy Family Villa and Catholic Charities.
