BENEMERENTI MEDAL for Sr Colleen Morey

BENEMERENTI MEDAL

Awarded for services to music

Congratulations, too, to Sr Colleen Morey for the award of the Benemerenti (‘To the well-deserving’) Medal for services to music. Originally a medal for soldiers in the Papal Army, it was broadened to be awarded by the Pope as a mark of significant service to the church in any field for both clergy and laity.

Sr Colleen was for many years Director of Music at the Cathedral of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Hamilton, and is a long-term supporter of RSCM, serving on the committee and frequently hosting branch activities at the cathedral.
