Faustino Barbosa, a volunteer with St. Joseph Hispanic Outreach, receives his MCC Citizen Recognition Award Oct. 2 from Carl Crawford, Kansas City-St. Joseph Bishops Robert W. Finn and Raymond J. Boland, and Jefferson City Bishop John R. Gaydos.
JEFFERSON CITY - The Missouri Catholic Conference announced recipients of its Citizen Recognition Awards, which were presented Oct. 2 at the Missouri Catholic Conference Annual Assembly. Each year the MCC recognizes one person or couple from each diocese whose actions promote the common good.

Awards were given to:

  • Faustino Barbosa of the Diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph, a volunteer for the St. Joseph Hispanic Outreach. Barbosa was recognized for his "outstanding service to the Hispanic community," according to a release from the MCC. Hispanic Outreach helps the Hispanic migrant and immigrant population with food, clothing, housing, transportation and language interpretation. It also advocates for the community in health, education and legal matters.

  • Judith A. Cassilly of the Archdiocese of St. Louis was chosen "for her dedication to protecting human life from its earliest stages." Her work for the pro-life cause includes coordinating a monthly pro-life Mass, participating in the annual Pro-Life March in Washington D.C., organizing a pro-life committee at her parish, and taking part in letter-writing campaigns to legislators.

  • Deacon Harry Agniel of the Diocese of Jefferson City was recognized for his 53 years of work in prison ministry. As an optometrist at the Missouri State Prison, he trained inmates to grind and make lenses for other inmates, and "upon their release from prison many were able to find good jobs as opticians." He started a weekly Bible study program for inmates in 1970, and helped to initiate the "Positive Mental Attitude" program at the prison.

  • Earl and Donna Vogel of the Diocese of Springfield-Cape Girardeau were selected for their commitment to feeding the hungry. The Vogels established the Marble Hill Food Pantry, and bought a larger space for the pantry once it had outgrown its original location. They serve about 800 people a month, with an emphasis on serving the elderly and disabled.
