ASV Founding Member Jody O’Connor was honored recently at the 95th Annual Meeting of its Board of Advisors of Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Chicago.
Ms. O’Connor, a wife, mother of six, owner of Jody O’Connor Photography and Board of Advisors member, was given the Dennis F. Kelly Award by Monsignor Michael M. Boland, Administrator, President and CEO of Catholic Charities, for her extraordinary dedication to the ASV program. She has been coming to the Tuesday Night Suppers for ten years, working with supper guests and other volunteer members of the ASV Photo Team to create the ASV Photo Exhibition each June. Ms. O’Connor’s warmth, sincerity and expertise in photography have helped hundreds of Catholic Charities clients discover their creativity, grow in confidence and develop their talents as photographers.
Named after the first president of Catholic Charities, the Dennis F. Kelly Award is given periodically to a member of the Board of Advisors in recognition of his or her outstanding service and witness to the mission of Catholic Charities as active lay women and men in the Church.
All who work with Ms. O’Connor truly are inspired by her, and wish her the heartiest congratulations on receiving this award.
