David Hines: Volunteers of the Year 2019

The David Hines Award, honoring outstanding volunteers at St. Monica, was presented on Friday, June 28 at the annual Volunteer Appreciation Celebration.


The award celebrates the memory of one of our parish’s most beloved volunteers, David Hines. He was a tireless and selfless leader, active in the church choir as a musician and a singer, the coordinator of the annual Seder dinner and was actively involved in our youth programs. David died tragically in a car accident while driving to Serra Retreat Center to assist with an 8th grade retreat.


The David Hines Award was created after his death to honor his exceptional service to St. Monica, and each year we give it to those in the community who exhibit his love and commitment to service. Hines, a professional musician and sound engineer, had a personal epiphany after meeting Msgr. Torgerson in the early 1990s, and soon after devoted himself to help others. He was a well-known and much-loved part of the St. Monica music family, and he even wrote the song “Daddy” often heard at our mass celebrations.


While his sudden death stunned our community, the church was filled for his funeral. His brother said, “he would have loved that, because Dave lived for the celebration.” In that spirit, we celebrate the outstanding work of this year’s winners of the 2019 David Hines “Volunteer of the Year” Award – congratulations!
