The McFaul-Mullan Award
The State Board has started an annual award to honor people in the names of Bishop James A. McFaul, the second Bishop of the Diocese of Trenton and Father Hugh Mullan, Corpus Christi Chapel, Belfast Ireland. This award will be presented this year to Father Dan Cahill.
In order to ensure that this award is carried on in the future, the award will be incorporated into the the NJ State AOH bylaws. The text of the proposed article is as follows:
The State Board shall award biennially, a memento to be known as the McFaul-Mullan award (Bishop James A. McFaul, the second Bishop of the Diocese of Trenton – Father Hugh Mullan, Corpus Christi Chapel, Belfast Ireland) honoring a Religious or Lay person that has shown outstanding service of love and forgiveness with understanding and compassion. We acknowledge their continued efforts of living the Gospel truths with justice and faithfulness as they humbly serve the Catholic Church. Their faith and spirit has guided The Ancient Order of Hibernians with the spiritual guidance that assists all men of this order in living our motto of friendship, unity, and true Christian charity.
This article will be proposed for adoption during the upcoming NJAOH Convention.
