Grand Knight Ron Mador was nominated for and awarded the 2017 Marian Medal, representing St. Joan of Arc Parish.
First presented in 1968, the annual award recognizes members of diocesan parishes for their dedicated service to the Church. Recipients are nominated for the award by their pastor. The medals were blessed and presented in the context of Evening Prayer of the Church and Eucharistic Adoration and Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament. Made of sterling silver, the Marian Medal is embossed with a Miraculous Medal on one side and the Fall River Diocesan coat-of-arms on the other.
Bishop Edgar da Cunha, SDV, awarded the 2017 Marian Medal to 82 laypersons from parishes throughout the Fall River Diocese on Sunday, November 19, at the Cathedral of St. Mary of the Assumption.


Ron joins three other members of Council 3384 who have also received this recognition; Joe Moran, Bob Donahoe, PGK, and Don Ouellette, PGK.
