These beautiful souls have been working in unison to cultivate the faith for over 20 years at St. George Greek Orthodox in Saint Paul, Minnesota. Steve and Minda Arsenault are the smiling faces and loving eyes who greet visitors, welcoming them into the church. They have coordinated numerous retreats and classes to help all those seeking to learn more about the faith. Their humble presence in the bookstore, expanding the faith’s reach with their knowledge and love is truly heartening. Their tireless dedication to the ecclesiastical life, their team approach to education, chanting, bookstore management, as well as being Godparents to many converts, and active participants on Parish Council and Philoptochos, continues to inspire parishioners of all ages. St. George Church is pleased to recognize Stephen and Minda as the recipients of the first Bronze Cross award, as they exemplify the faith through their actions, and leadership through their service to the church and the community.
