Sister of Charity of Nazareth Julie Driscoll was honored last month by House of Ruth, an organization that serves families affected by HIV/AIDS.
Sister Driscoll received the charity’s inaugural Sister Julie Driscoll Award for Outstanding AIDS Advocacy and Service. It will be awarded annually to a local individual “who has demonstrated exemplary advocacy and services to benefit those living with HIV/AIDS,” according to a message from the charity’s executive director, Lisa Sutton.
“We chose Sister Julie to honor and to name the award after because of her service to those with HIV/AIDS locally over the past two decades,” Sutton said.
Sister Driscoll became the charity’s first executive director in 1993.
