CONGRATULATIONS, DONNA KUNICKI!
Cardinal George and the Archdiocese of Chicago have established an award, the Christifidelis, which is given
to a layperson (or couple) in each parish, who demonstrates faithfulness and dedication in ministry. At
the recommendation of Fr. Dan and Bishop Francis Kane (our vicar general), this award will be conferred on St.
Hilary’s Donna Kunicki at the Archdiocesan Awards Ceremony on Sunday, October 26th at Holy Name
Donna has served faithfully as sacristan for the past five years at St. Hilary Parish. Her dedication to duty is only surpassed by her devotion to the Eucharist. In addition to caring for the sacred vessels, vestments,
lights, etc., she also serves as doorkeeper, opening the church for the faithful seven days a week. Not only does she ensure that the things necessary for worship are arranged properly, but all who enter are greeted daily by her warm
welcome, including the altar servers whom she mentors on life's Christian values. Living the words found in Ephesians, "Rendering service with a good will as to the Lord and not to man, knowing that whatever good anyone does,
this he will receive back from the Lord," Donna Kunicki exemplifies true Christian service. A good and holy sacristan is a blessing to any parish; she remains a blessing to St. Hilary Parish. Donna’s devotion to duty, religious fervor, and selfless service to the community make her a fitting candidate.
Congratulations and may God bless you.
Fr. Dan Jankowski
