Here we see Bishop Peter Moran carefully explaining to the faithful why Don was judged worthy of this great award. Part of the evidence was clearly visible for all to see - the new church building. Perhaps it is Don's warm smile which is his greatest gift to us all - for the Lord loves a cheerful giver!
Don has given most generously of his time and talents - but we still have a debt of £300,000 to pay off. Don would not be pleased if I didn't use this opportunity to invite donations to our appeal!
