Woman of Year selected at Christ the King Catholic Church
CEDAR CITY–Christ the King Catholic Church in Cedar City has nominated Mrs. Donna Dischbein as its 2018 Sr. Yvonne Hatt Woman of the Year. Donna was among several
women nominated by her peers in the parish for various accomplishments not only within the church but in our southern Utah community.
Donna and her husband Dave have been an active presence in the parish for 35 years. She began her involvement with the music ministry when Christ the King was only a “little church on the corner.” Donna served as President of the Alter Society (now called Catholic Women Council) and served in a number of other offices.
Donna and Dave worked for eight years on the committee that planned and conducted the annual spaghetti dinner fundraiser. They also volunteered to work in the hot dog booth at the Renaissance Faire in Cedar City, while also working for 10 years as a board member. She also conducted their major fundraising auction.
While working fulltime for the Bureau of Land Management, Donna found time to serve as President of the Ladies of Elks, both on the local and state level. She was on the local United Way Board first as a member and then as President.
For the past four years, Donna has served as Community Concerns chairperson for the Catholic Women’s Council, reaching out to organizations such as Iron County Care and Share, the Cedar City Justice Center and Bread of Life, to determine their needs and coordinate the Christ the King parish efforts to assist them. Donna’s continued presence in the Catholic Parish and our community are an inspiration to all who know her!
Mrs. Dishbein will be officially honored at the Annual DCCW (Diocesan Council of Catholic Women) convention in Salt Lake City the weekend of April 27-29, along with other Women of the Year winners from various Utah Catholic parishes.
