2007 Prince Gallitzin Cross Award Recipient

Robert and Debbie Will are members of Saint Thomas the Apostle Parish in Bedford, and were proposed as recipients of the award by Father Donald Dusza, pastor.

Father Dusza said of them “Robert and Debbie Will do a tremendous amount for Saint Thomas Parish.” Both Robert and Debbie are involved in religious education and work with the parish youth group; Debbie is the parish’s director of religious education, and coordinator of the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults. Bob has filled in for the parish janitor when he was unable to work. “They are always willing to do whatever is necessary for the good of the parish,” said Father Dusza.
