St. Joseph Award given in honor of Louis Sirois

The St. Joseph Award is presented by the Andover Knights of Columbus, Council #1078, to an individual or couple for their support of St. Augustine Parish in Andover, MA. To be eligible for the award, a volunteer must be a parishioner at St. Augustine and work/volunteer in one or more ministries at the church. The award is intended to highlight the laity without whose support the parish, our church, and our catholic community would not be as wonderful.

The award is given in the name of Louis Sirois, a fellow brother knight who provided his carpentry artisanship as a gift to the parish for many decades. To this day, many of his works and gifts to the parish (including the Ambo and the Baptismal font) can be seen in our church.

The Award is named after St. Joseph, protector of the church and of the Augustinian Order.  It was established at the 2017 Winter Warmup.

The award is given in the name of Sr. Paul and Sr. Kathleen's many years of service to the students, faculty, staff, and alumni of Saint Augustine School.  They tireless love and support of their students has impacted the lives of generations of parishioners and the local community.
