On May 7th, in a special ceremony at St. Joseph Church, Archbishop Gregory Aymond honored members of the Archdiocese of New Orleans with the Order of St. Louis IX Medallion.
In the award letter, Archbishop Aymond wrote, "The Order of St. Louis is one of the highest and most cherished honors bestowed by the local Church on a member of the laity. It was established more than forty years ago to recognize individuals who have given unselfishly of their time and talent to the work of the Church for many years."
