A Copper Basin son, named Prefect of the Papal Household, will be coming home to celebrate with friends and family this weekend.
Monsignor Raul Trevizo, a former resident of Hayden, was named monsignor by Pope Benedict XVI on February 20, 2012. The title is given in recognition of his service to the Church.
