What a saint: Lawyer awarded by Catholic Migration Services
What an honor: Three cheers for Brooklyn attorney Frank Carone, center, who took home the 2018 Saint Frances X. Cabrini Award for Migration from do-good group the Catholic Migration Services on Nov. 28.
Kudos to Brooklyn attorney Frank Carone for receiving an award from do-good group the Catholic Migration Services on Nov. 28. Carone, a partner at Downtown law firm Abrams, Fensterman, Fensterman, Eisman, Formato, Ferrara, Wolf and Carone, took home the 2018 Saint Frances X. Cabrini Award for Migration at The Bishop’s Residence on Clinton Avenue in Clinton Hill, where he was recognized for his commitment to helping families immigrating to America by ensuring they have safe and fair housing and employment.
Carone said it was a blessing to receive such an award from the church and Joralemon Street organization.
“The church has pioneered in identifying the needs of those least able — people here seeking a better life,” he said. “I am honored to be recognized and will continue to help and spread the message that the migration service is so vital in areas of immigration rights, access to healthcare, and even tenant advocacy, and has provided comfort for well over 20,000 immigrants and their families.”
The award was first given in 1983 to Bishop Francis J. Mugavero, an immigrant who became the first citizen of the United States to be canonized by the Catholic Church in 1946.
