Thank You to the Franciscan Sisters of Chicago

The Franciscan Sisters of Chicago presented Henry Bros. Co. owners George W. Ferrell and William H. Callaghan, Jr. with the Golden Thread Award at their annual Autumn Dinner Dance on October 28, 2016. In presenting the award, the Sisters explained its meaning.

"The Golden Thread Award is a distinction that is bestowed upon an individual or group of individuals whose loyal and faithful commitment has enabled the Franciscan Sisters of Chicago to continue their ministries. It was the thought of Mother Mary Theresa Dudzik that people who helped her in her work were like golden threads. The golden threads were solid, strong and a valuable part of the fabric of the life and future of the Sisters. Speaking of 'golden threads' is a more feminine way of telling of the ways that this awardee has related to us. It would certainly be right to translate their actions over the past seventeen years into the masculine language of construction, of bricks and mortar. Throughout that entire period they have gifted us with veritable 'bricks' of cash with which we could further build up our charitable ministries. But far beyond these generous annual gifts, they have cemented it all with the best gift of all – their solid relationship with the Sisters – the mortar which binds us together in friendship and love. Today we honor these builders, or as we say, 'golden threads' with this award, backed by the grateful prayers and wishes of all the Franciscan Sisters of Chicago."

 Mr. Ferrell and Mr. Callaghan both appreciate this honor, and are touched that their commitment to establishing solid relationships with clients would engender such recognition. They would like to thank the Franciscan Sisters of Chicago not only for the prestigious Golden Thread Award, but also for the fine work the Sisters accomplish.
