teM F. S SAGE CATHOLIC DIOCESE OF EVANSVILLE VOLUME 23 NUMBER 36 May 14, 1993 teachers receive diocesan education awards Mater Dei, Holy Rosary, Corpus Christi teachers are honored By MARY ANN HUGHES Message staff writer The three winners of the 1993 Teacher of the Year awards were unanimous in their surprise and disbelief at receiving the diocese's high- est education award. The three teachers, Benedictine Sister Mary Francis Williams, Rita Farny and Catherine Schwenk, received their awards from Bishop Gerald A. Gettelfinger on May 5 at the annual Teacher of the Year banquet. After receiving her award, Sister Mary Francis, a]eacher: at M/tter Dei High School,'. Evansville, said "I was very much surprised. It's an honor just to be here, much less to be selected as Teacher of the Year." Rita Farny, a teacher at Holy Rosary School, Evansville, said she was "so thrilled when the bishop an- nounced my name. From that moment on, everything went blank. It was probably the most humbling moment I've ever had." Catherine Schwenk, a teacher at Corpus Christi School, Evansville, said as she was walking up to accept the award from Bishop Get- telfinger, she thought, "I wish I was taking the other 26 nominees up there with me because I felt they are defi- nitely worthy of this honor too." Over 200 attended the sixth annual Teacher of the Year banquet, which is spon- sored by the Message and the Office of Catholic Education. d Youth Day official finds Denver excited ]liLlE ASHER $145.3 million expected to be n Walsh, World Youth Day :he pope, News Service (CNS) -- A adline in a recent The Denver Post aper proclaimed World Youth y boon." an estimated pumped into the city -. isn't spokeswoman, told Catholic the only thing on the minds News Service in a telephone of residents and busines interview from Denver May 7. owners in the city that will Some of the city's mer- host Pope John Paul II and chants have banded together young people from around to create a real Western wel- the world, come for the young people "I find a real excitement in who will be arriving in Den- this city," Mercy Sister Mary ver for the Aug. 12-15 visit of Aug. 7-11 International Youth Forum.
