St. Augustine Medal Award

Honorees are recognized for their volunteer service to parishes, schools and charities throughout Fairfield County.

The ceremony is usually filled, as the pastoral leaders who nominated the recipients, their friends, family and loved ones gathered to acknowledge and celebrate the honorees.

The awarding of the St. Augustine Medals is a day of joy and pride for the entire diocese as we recognize the faithful service of so many parishioners. This day is a special time of recognition and gratitude. Pastors, priests and deacons throughout the diocese accompany the recipients as they come forward to be presented the medal. More than 150 medals are awarded to individuals and couples from every parish and diocesan ministries.

In 2005, Archbishop William E. Lori, then Bishop of Bridgeport, instituted the medal service to recognize the "unsung heroes" who unselfishly give of their time and talents to build up parish communities. On one side of the medal is an image of Saint Augustine of Hippo, patron saint of the diocese. The reverse features the coat of arms of the diocese.
