Marist Robert Sokolowski was honored at the Savannah Cathedral’s Annual Heritage Gala held in November 2015.

He had served at the Cathedral for 27 years prior to his retirement in May 2015.

The December issue of the Cathedral's Twin Spires publication reported on the event: "The highlight of the evening was Bishop Hartmayer's presentation of the Pro Ecclesia et Pontifice medal to Guest of Honor Brother Robert for his many years of distinguished service to the Church. It is the highest medal that can be awarded to the laity by the Pope."
