Congratulations to Senior Margaret Mathis

Cor Jesu is happy to announce that the 2021 Archbishop May Service Award at Cor Jesu will be awarded to Margaret Mathis. The award is given annually to 25 high school seniors—one from each Catholic high school in the Archdiocese of St. Louis.  Seniors who receive this award have devoted many, many hours to serving God through their service to others in need.

Christian service is an integral part of every Catholic high school. For over 20 years the Archdiocese of St. Louis has recognized the importance of young people serving others by its institution of the Archbishop John L. May Service Award.

During her high school career, Margaret has volunteered for more than 350 hours in organizations that directly serve families and children in need.  The South City and Gateway Region YMCA are two of the organizations where she volunteers.  Margaret helped found the South City Teen Leaders Club.  The goal of the group is to create opportunities for teens to learn how to be leaders and form a close-knit community while reaching out to others.
Congratulations, Margaret, on this wonderful recognition.  CJ is so proud of you!
