“ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT THINGS about Dominic Corriere (February 4, 1938 – March 10, 2019) was his devotion to Our Daily Bread,” said Dom’s lifelong friend and fellow Friday volunteer, Don Welch.

“Dom came to Our Daily Bread every Friday for more than 18 years. He worked in the kitchen making sure the food was delicious and healthy. In fact, he introduced the idea of offering a vegetarian dish to our guests. He was respected and loved by all he encountered.”

Just hours before his passing, Catholic Charities Executive Director Bill McCarthy spoke of Dom’s devotion to Our Daily Bread Employment Center at the 2019 Taste of Maryland dinner, an event that he sponsored for many years.

Nick Rudomin, volunteer manager at Our Daily Bread, has very fond memories of Dom.  “Mr. Corriere had great expectations from Catholic Charities and always asked us to be better, because he cared so deeply for those we served,” Nick said. “We miss Dom and think of him every Friday when we gather at 10:30 a.m. and open our doors to serve.”
