EWTN hosted its annual Christmas Luncheon at the Pine Tree Country Club in Irondale, Alabama. The event is an opportunity for all employees and friars to celebrate in anticipation of the solemnity of Christmas. After the meal, EWTN president & CEO Michael Warsaw recognized those employees who have dedicated themselves to the mission of EWTN for a number of years. Those who have worked for 5, 10, 15, 20, 25 years receive a gift in gratitude for their service. Our Fr. Joseph Mary received special recognition for 25 years of service to EWTN as a former network engineer and member of the Franciscan Missionaries of the Eternal Word. The event concluded with a drawing of names to win various door prizes provided by several corporate sponsors.
