The Peg Mccarthy Volunteerism Award was established in 1998, and this award goes to the graduating Immaculate Conception student who best exemplifies a spirit of volunteerism. Mrs. “Peg” McCarthy was a longtime member of the Immaculate Conception Parish who volunteered in a variety of parish and civic programs in the City of Revere. For many years she was active in the Catholic Daughters, the Immaculata Guild, Bingo, the Prayer Group, and served as a Eucharistic Minister. In her later years, she gave her time to the Immaculate Conception School, serving the needs of teachers, students, and staff. “Peg” McCarthy was born into eternal life on January 1, 1997. This memorial award has been established by her family to keep her spirit alive at the Immaculate Conception School. The recipient of this award has been chosen by the teachers and staff of the Immaculate Conception School because of his or her unselfish service, positive attitude, and Catholic values.
This year’s recipient of the “Peg” McCarthy Volunteerism Award is John Gadbois.
