Joe Bauer Receives Austen Warburton Community Service Award

Congratulations to Mr. Joe Bauer, St. Justin’s Pastoral Associate extraordinaire, on receiving the Austen Warburton Community Service Award at this year’s Mission City Community Fund Annual Dinner held at the Santa Clara Convention Center on November 11. This award celebrates the importance of public service and is presented each year to an individual exemplifying the spirit and character of Mission City Community Fund founder Austen Warburton, an attorney, civic leader, educator, historian, and philanthropist who made it his life’s mission to make his community a better place to live.   Mr. Bauer has done just that for the St. Justin community. As director of the parish’s Community Ministry program, Mr. Bauer has dedicated his life to help the less fortunate. The program opens its doors six days a week to distribute food and other necessities to people in need, and every Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter, meals are distributed to hundreds of hungry families. In fact, just at Christmastime alone, over 800 families receive assistance from Joe Bauer and his team of selfless volunteers.   In addition to working with the poor, Mr. Bauer also coordinates special meals for the senior citizens of the parish. Known as “Outreach Dinners,” these get-togethers are held 1-2 times a month and provide the seniors with a delicious lunch followed by several entertaining rounds of BINGO.   Mr. Bauer truly is a pillar of the St. Justin community. Students and their families are encouraged to get involved in his ministries by donating food, clothing, toys, books, blankets, or simply their time. He is a constant reminder of what it means to walk in the footsteps of Christ and that “it is in giving that we...
