Ken Phipps

Ken Phipps is nominated and recognized for his amazing dedication in juggling his time as scoutmaster, along with his regular job which requires him to travel a lot and, still manages to coach at St. Monica. He has been instrumental in keeping the troop active and growing. He made sure scouts, like Tristam Vowell, received recognition for their actions, especially as Tristam received the BSA Heroism medal for attempting to rescue a life. Ken has also worked at making sure the troop continues to help in the community through our involvement in the Austin Street shelter project and church ceremonies. He has been with our troop since 2010 as an assistant scoutmaster and has been our scoutmaster since February 2011. He has seen and assisted in 52 boys becoming Eagle Scouts in his time with our troop.

Lydia Piskor

I nominate Lydia Piskor for recognition. As a volunteer, she has made herself available 2-3 times per week to be at events for the teens. Additionally, she took on the role of coordinating our middle school program on Sundays. She just accepted a position to work in ministry full time after her experience selflessly serving the L1FT youth ministry program.

Jesús y Rosa De la Cruz

Rosa y Jesús, han sido un apoyo esencial en la supervisión de las bancas con los niños en la Misa de Niños. Iniciaron su voluntariado desde que inicio el Ministerio de la Misa de Niños y hasta hoy en día, siempre han tenido la disponibilidad de servir al Señor en éste maravilloso ministerio. En el ministerio de la Misa de Niños se engloba el Coro, Hospitalidad y Servidores del Altar. Dentro de la Misa los supervisores de niños también forman parte esencial y es por eso que nominamos ésta pareja que siempre ha estado presente.

Rosa and Jesús have been an essential support in the supervision of the children at the Spanish Children’s Mass. They started volunteering since this special Mass started. Today, they remain available to serve God in this wonderful ministry. This Mass includes Choir, Junior Ushers and Altar Servers. Jesús and Rosa’s roles are a very important part of the Mass. They deserve this recognition for always being present and supportive.
