Catholic Charities Bids a Fond Farewell

Laura Malone Retires

It is with both excitement and sadness that Catholic Charities, Diocese of Norwich, says goodbye to one of our most valued employees. 

On August 12, Laura Malone, chief administration officer, retired. Laura has been a loyal and devoted employee of Catholic Charities for the last six years. 

Laura joined Catholic Charities in 2016 as an executive assistant. Over the years, she has worn many hats, from performing accounts payable to overseeing all the social media activity for Catholic Charities, doing whatever it takes to make Catholic Charities run smoothly. Over the years, she has acquired so much institutional knowledge that her input on any topic is invaluable to all of us at the agency.

Before joining Catholic Charities, Laura has kept her work experience within the Norwich Diocese, working at St. Joseph’s Church in Norwich as a secretary and bookkeeper, Saints Peter and Paul in Norwich as a bookkeeper and Sacred Heart Church in Norwichtown, where she is not only a parishioner but also served a number of years as president of the Rosary and Altar Society, focusing on women of the parish.

In addition to her dedicated work ethic, we will equally miss her care and enthusiasm for her co-workers. Laura is always on hand to celebrate a co-worker’s milestone or gather employees for holiday celebrations, making everyone feel special. Susan Connelly, chief operations officer for Catholic Charities, said, “Laura was such an important part of Catholic Charities and will be truly missed.”

We wish Laura and her husband, Bill, all the best on their new adventure. They will be moving back to Florida, where they once lived, but now it will be for some rest and relaxation.
