Fritz Jones, the recently retired executive director of Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Wilmington, was presented with a resolution from the Maryland state Senate recognizing his more than 40 years of service.
The Diocese of Wilmington social service agency covers all of Delaware and the Eastern Shore of Maryland.
The resolution was presented to Jones on Jan. 29 in Annapolis by state Sen. Mary Beth Carozza of District 38. Bishop Koenig was in attendance for the presentation.
“In recognition of your retirement after 45 years of dedicated service to the residents of Maryland’s Eastern Shore with the Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Wilmington, making a lasting impact on our shore community,” the resolution reads.
A lifelong Delaware resident, Jones, 68, retired at the same time as his wife of 38 years, Donna, who also worked for the diocese.
