Bishop Blair to lead service honoring disabled Catholics

Bishop Leonard Blair of the Toledo Catholic Diocese will honor Catholics with disabilities at the 11th annual Open Door Luturgy, 4:30 p.m. Feb. 28 at St. Mary of the Redeemer Church in Norwalk, Ohio.

The individuals to be honored were nominated by their home parish and selected by the diocese s Equal Access Ministry Advisory Council.

Receiving awards will be Bill Blackwell of St. Martin de Porres Parish, Toledo; Lois Perito of St. Joseph Parish in Crestline, Ohio, and Diana Pilcher from Immaculate Conception in Toledo.

Benita Nowowiejski will be the first posthumous honoree for the Open Arms Award. Ms. Nowowiejski, of Little Flower Parish in Toledo, died last year at age 80.
