Red Cross honors Father Jerome Hartlein
Mascoutah pastor recognized for 'lifetime achievement'

Thousands of lives will be saved this month thanks to Father Jerome Hartlein and several volunteers in the Mascoutah community. Saving lives has become second nature for Father Hartlein through his efforts as the coordinator of Mascoutah’s blood drives for the past 25 years - promoting awareness for the needs of the American Red Cross and donors in the area.

On Sept. 4, Father Hartlein was recognized for his efforts when he was presented a plaque from the city of Mascoutah and the American Red Cross. “It really is an honor,” Father Hartlein said.
