St. Bede honors volunteer students

Nick Sercel and Andrew Nettles, students at St. Bede the Venerable Catholic School, were recently recognized as distinguished service award winners by local branch 374 of the Italian Catholic Federation.

Branch President Al Restivo, and First Vice President Mark Mannarelli presented checks for $100 each to the young men at two meetings of ICF held in February and March at the St. Bede Parish Center. The boys were also presented with a framed certificate, which honored them for their distinguished service to their community, church and school.

Andrew Nettles, an eighth-grade student, worked many hours helping at Ronald McDonald House in Pasadena. He also contributed numerous service hours to the St. Bede Parish as an altar Server and in other roles helping the Knights of Columbus.

Seventh-grader Nick Sercel also provided after-school hours providing service to the community, church and school through his work as a mentor to Cub Scouts as a den chief, and for many hours provided to the church as an altar server.
