Receiving the Fideli Corde Award from the IHM Sisters:
“For over 40 years, Catherine has been working with and supporting the IHM sisters in their mission of Catholic education. Catherine has a great love for the sisters, the children, parents, faculty and staff of St. Monica School, at 17th and Ritner Streets in Philadelphia. Her positive attitude and joyful, generous spirit are the gift to all who knew her. She is a faithful witness to God’s love by her daily attendance at Mass and prayerful disposition throughout the day. She kept her desk drawer stocked with IHM Spiritual Treasury cards for faculty and staff and was a top seller of Camilla Hall chances each Oktoberfest. Known affectionately as “Mrs. I,” there is no “I” to anything she does. It has been and continues to be all about everyone else.”
