First slide

Bishop Emeritus Paul S. Loverde received the Enders Island Medal of Honor Oct. 13 in Mystic, Conn.

 

The event honored members of the community who are dedicated to lives of service and virtue.

 

Bishop Loverde served as Bishop of Arlington from 1999 to 2016.

 

The funds raised at the Medal of Honor gala benefit the Enders Island recovery program, where young men learn to live a life of recovery from alcohol and drug addiction.

 

St. Edmund’s Retreat at Enders Island focuses on recovery, spiritual well-being and educational programs. The 11-acre island was once the private estate of Dr. Thomas Enders and his wife, Alys. It was donated to the Society of St. Edmund in 1954.
