Priest Is Honored for for Community Work

July 09, 1998

The San Fernando City Council has presented an honorary plaque to Father Thomas Rush, pastor at Mary Immaculate Catholic Church in nearby Pacoima, for his longtime community work.

Rush is preparing to leave the area after working in San Fernando and Pacoima for 20 of the last 25 years.

Mayor Raul Godinez II and the four other council members honored Rush, 52, at their biweekly meeting.

Godinez said that while he was a student at Santa Rosa Catholic School he admired Rush, who would accompany youngsters on mountain hikes.

A Washington native, Rush came to Santa Rosa Catholic Church in San Fernando in 1973 on his first assignment as a priest.
