SEAN FAHEY RECEIVES JOHN B. ATKINS SR. AWARD FOR EXEMPLARY SERVICE
Outgoing Treasurer Sean Fahey was awarded the John B. Atkins Sr. Award for Exemplary Service to St. Peter’s Church by the Vestry during the parish’s Annual Meeting this past Sunday.  The award is given to a lay member of St. Peter’s Church who “exemplifies true and selfless stewardship of God’s church and who serve as models of Christian charity.”  Sean has served as Treasurer for five years, as a past Senior Warden and member of the Vestry, member of the Property, Finance and Evangelism Committees, musician with Peter’s Voice, and a tireless contributor as a volunteer with many ministries in the parish.  He is a lifetime member of St. Peter’s.  The announcement of this award to Sean was warmly received by those assembled at the Annual Meeting.

This is only the second time this award has been given. Congratulations Sean!
