Carone said it was a blessing to receive such an award from the church and Joralemon Street organization.
“The church has pioneered in identifying the needs of those least able — people here seeking a better life,” he said. “I am honored to be recognized and will continue to help and spread the message that the migration service is so vital in areas of immigration rights, access to healthcare, and even tenant advocacy, and has provided comfort for well over 20,000 immigrants and their families.”
The award was first given in 1983 to Bishop Francis J. Mugavero, an immigrant who became the first citizen of the United States to be canonized by the Catholic Church in 1946.
