Sophia Awards

Do you know someone in the Diocese who is sixty-five or older and who embraces and lives a life of stewardship – giving of their time, talent and treasure? The Diocese  of Owensboro created the Sophia Award, which is an award to celebrate someone from each parish who exemplifies stewardship in their life.

On Sunday, September 9, 2018, Bishop William Medley celebrated Mass at St. Stephen Cathedral with all of our award recipients.
