Meet our December Everyday Amazing Employees

Each month, two Catholic Charities of St. Louis Federation employees nominated by their peers are recognized for exemplifying Personal Excellence, a Spirit of Servant Leadership, and the Catholic Charities Mission. The honorees for December 2018 are… 

St. Francis Community Services Bilingual Case Manager/Advocate Silvia Martinez                                     

Professionalism, humility and respect are words nominators repeated when describing Silvia, who is considered “the face of Southside Center.”

“I would invite anyone to shadow Silvia to learn what commitment to the mission of our agency really looks like,” said one nominator. “She makes everyone around her feel special.”


Good Shepherd Children & Family Services Maternity Program Assistant Mary Solomon

Mary’s nominator noted that she embodies a passion for mission both at work and in the community, also describing Mary as a natural leader who fosters human dignity.

“Mary works with our most vulnerable clients,” said the nominator. “She jokes with them when they are feeling silly, offers them a shoulder when they have intense moments of fear, and listens when they just need to vent.”

Congrats to all who were nominated! We’ll publish a complete list of nominees at the end of each quarter.
