Annette DiMedio will receive the 2014 Claver Award presented by the Philadelphia Central Committee of the Knights of Peter Claver and the Knights of Peter Claver Ladies Auxiliary.
For 25 years, DiMedio has been the 6ABC producer of the weekly televised Mass sponsored by the Archdiocese of Philadelphia’s Office for Communications. The eighth annual Claver Award Banquet will be held at the City Avenue Hilton Hotel on Saturday, Nov. 15 at 1 p.m.
The event reflects the mission of St. Peter Claver by publicly spotlighting those adults and young people who have made an impact by serving their church and community with distinction.
The 1,300 Masses that have aired on 6ABC have served as a spiritual lifeline for thousands of the faithful in the Philadelphia region who are elderly, ill or otherwise unable to attend a regularly scheduled Mass.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
