By Staff     1/24/2020

St. Joseph Evangelization Network-St. Joseph Radio each year honors Catholic lay men who give selflessly to the Church. The individual selected from all nominees as Catholic Man of the Year for the Diocese of Orange will be feted at a dinner on March 22 at the Anaheim Marriot Suites in Garden Grove. Bishop Timothy Freyer will present the award. 

Parishes may nominate one or more men from their church, including individuals as well as those who are active in organizations such as Knights of Columbus, St. Vincent de Paul, Cursillo, Legion of Mary and others. 

Candidates must be practicing Catholic lay men within the Diocese of Orange who, as unpaid volunteers, contribute outstanding service to the Church and the community in the humble, quiet spirit of Saint Joseph, according to the nomination committee. Individuals may be nominated every other year. 

Nomination forms can be downloaded at saintjosephradio.net. 

Tickets to the March 22 award dinner are $100 per person, $50 for children age 12 and under. Tickets must be purchased by Feb. 12. Information: 714-609-9606
